The NANOCHANNELS project used different communication channels (media, radio, social media etc.) to inform and engage the general public and different key stakeholders (like NGOs and industry) in the debating about the risks and social implications of nanotechnologies. Students were also involved both in the product of content and in debate through several school debates that were conducted in various locations around Europe.
