Center for Constitutional Issues in Technology
CCIT is a nonprofit foundation formed as a member of the Foresight
family of organizations to provide a specific focus for research, thinking,
discussion, and ultimately advocacy in the area of public policy affected
by, and influencing, the emergence of nanotechnology.
CCIT's first project was an examination of the expected effects of nanotechnology
on the standards and information issues in the field of medicine, funded
by the US Pharmacopoeia (USP) Convention, the nongovernmental pharmacological
standards-setting organization in the United States.
CCIT is now defining a number of research projects that will provide the
first serious examination of policy questions in regard to upcoming issues
stimulated by the emergence of molecular manufacturing. One key area is
expected to be that of computer security, or "trusty computing."
