Nanotechnologies: Where should they take us? Have your say

Toolkit for ethical reflection and communication

This Toolkit for ethical reflection and communication does not claim to provide a definitive picture of all options in the ethical debate on nanotechnology. Its aim is to provide the reader with means to frame his/her own vision of the debate and to sharpen ethical awareness of the parties involved in the development of nanosciences and nanotechnologies. The kit aims at helping the dialogue between philosophy, science, industry, and society
