Nanotechnologies: Where should they take us? Have your say

General sector reports

The general sector reports provide more detailed scientific and technological analysis for each of the ten technology sectors: Aerospace, Automotive & Transport; Agrifood; Chemistry and Materials; Construction; Energy; Environment; Healthcare; Information and Communication Technology; Security; Textiles. There is one report for each sector. These reports have been through three stages. Firstly, an interim document was drawn up by the responsible project partner, using a combination of desk research and interviews. At this point comments and input from the nanotechnology expert community were gathered (through interviews, workshops, and a questionnaire), in addition to feedback from other members of the project consortium.  Finally, this data was utilised to produce a final version of the report.

OBSERVATORYNANO

The aim of the OBSERVATORYNANOI project was to support policy makers through the provision of wide-ranging scientific and economic analysis of nanoscience and nanotechnology developments, together with the assessment of ethical and societal aspects, impacts on environment, health and safety, as well as developments in regulation and standardization. The project focused on 10 technology sectors: Aerospace, Automotive & Transport; Agrifood; Chemistry and Materials; Construction; Energy; Environment; Healthcare; Information and Communication Technology; Security; Textiles

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.
