Meridian Institute

Rockefeller Foundation Meetings on Nanotechnology

Related: Agriculture and Food Systems, Health, Science and Technology

Meridian Institute organized and facilitated two meetings at the request of The Rockefeller Foundation, the first in October 2003 and the second in November 2004. These were small informational meetings about nanotechnology for the senior leadership of the Foundation, including President Gordon Conway and the Directors of the Global Inclusion, Food Security, and Health Equities Programs. The meetings were not intended to signal a new area of grant-making for the Foundation, but rather to inform senior leadership about this rapidly developing issue. Presentations and discussions focused on helping Foundation staff understand the implications of nanotechnology for areas of historical importance to the Foundation, including agriculture and health.
