In an example of cross-campus collaboration, Sam Nunn School of International Affairs Assistant Professor Margaret E. Kosal chaired the 2nd Annual GA Tech Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) Workshop on Ethics, Policy, and Entrepreneurship for undergrads.

Part of the NSF-sponsored Summer Research Experience for Undergrads (REU SURF) and Research Experience for Teachers (RET GIFT), this annual workshop in the School of Materials Science and Engineering aims to provide awareness and learning of ethics, entrepreneurship, globalization, and public policy issues, in order to spark students' interests in pursuing graduate studies in materials science and engineering for a variety of careers, in addition to those in research and academics. The MSE summer research programs bring together undergrad students in materials science, biomedical engineering, mechanical engineering, and chemistry from around the State and the nation and local Atlanta high school teachers to pursue engineering research opportunities at Georgia Tech.

Other participants in the workshop included Dr. Jason Borenstein from GA Tech's School of Public Policy who spoke on research ethics and Dr. Stacy Shukar, Director of Center of Innovation for Life Sciences of Georgia, who spoke on entrepreneurship and the challenges of supporting at the interface between industry and academia. In addition to speaking on national and international policy on nanotechnology, Prof Kosal led a case study-based exercise on responding to ethical and security challenges of dual-use research and publishing.
