Nanotechnologies: Where should they take us? Have your say


The CodeMeter is a self-assessment and learning tool to support stakeholders engaging with the principles and values of the EC Code of Conduct (voluntary regulatory scheme for stakeholders dealing with nanotechnology). The tool breaks down the EU-Code of Conduct’s general principles and guidelines in form of questions with multiple option answers. Depending on responses given a scoring profile shows up at the end of the CodeMeter enabling the assessment of individual stakeholders’ performance in relation to the EU-CoC principles and guidelines for action. The CodeMeter allows companies or research institutions dealing with nanotechnology to verify their compliance with the voluntary EC Code of Conduct set up by the EC in January 2010.


NANOCODE was a multistakeholder dialogue project providing inputs to implement the European Code of Conduct for Responsible Nanosciences & Nanotechnologies Research commenced in January 2010. The objective of NanoCode was to define and develop a framework aimed at supporting the successful integration and implementation, at European level and beyond, of the Code of Conduct (CoC) for nanosciences and nanotechnologies (N&N) research as developed by the European Commission.,1/

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.
