Nanotechnologies: Where should they take us? Have your say

Nano-TV video # 8- Mobile Detection System for Contaminated Water

This video describes how engineers have developed a new a mobile detection system to fight the growing threat of contaminated drinking water. Within the European research project DINAMICS they have built a microchip system which is able to identify specific dangerous bacteria, viruses or unicellular organisms. This is one of fourteen different videos produced by NANO-TV and covering different applications of nanotechnology, ranging from medicine, to energy, environment and ICT.

NANO-TV

The NANO-TV project aim was the development of public awareness on European nano-research in all European countries through television media (in the form of video news releases) and the internet.

About nanopinion

  • nanopinion is an EC-funded project bringing together 17 partners from 11 countries with the aim of monitoring public opinion on what we hope from innovation with nanotechnologies. The project is aimed citizens with a special focus on hard-to-reach target groups, which are people who do not normally encounter and give their opinion nanotechnologies at first hand.
  • Dialogue is facilitated online and in outreach events in 30 countries presenting different participatory formats.
  • To promote an informed debate, we also run a strong press & social media campaign and offer a repository with more than 150 resources.
