Estimated Implications

The great thing about trading zones is that successful ones expand, creating more opportunities for all of us to learn from each other. Hopefully, the first NBIC meeting has provided a foundation for such a trading zone between nano, bio, info, and cogno practitioners — and those in other communities like ethics, politics, and social relations.

We must remember to accompany the creation of convergent trading zones with detailed studies of their development. One of the most valuable outcomes would be a better understanding of how to encourage the formation of convergent, multidisciplinary trading zones.
