About nanopinion

Monitoring public opinion in Europe...

Nanopinion is an EC-funded project bringing together 17 partners from 11 countries with the aim of monitoring public opinion on what we expect from innovation with nanotechnologies. In order to carry out this study, different modes of public participation are being organised. The project is aimed at citizens with a special focus on hard-to-reach target groups, i.e. people who do not actively show interest in science .

The project promotes informed social debate over the Internet through:

At the same time, the debate is also being promoted through live events:

At the end of the project, findings and recommendations will be reported to policy makers from different institutions including the European Commission. The public participation methodology will be made available to the public so that it can be used as a reference for future projects promoted under the new EC Framework Programme Horizon 2020, where the Commission aims to promote “Responsible Research and Innovation” counting on the participation of citizens.
