Abstract

This report provides TEMAS AG with information regarding the perceptions that advanced technology companies and researchers have regarding emerging technologies, with a focus on nanotechnology, with regard to risk management. The problem comes from the lack of involvement from insurance companies in adequately covering nanotechnologies and other emerging risks. Through interviews with advanced technology companies and nanotechnology researchers, we concluded that nanotechnology, like all modern technology, has risks, and these technologies cannot improve without assuming a certain amount of risk.
