Nanotechnologies: Where should they take us? Have your say

Round table debate in Milan

The video is a recording of a meeting (april 2012) between different stakeholders who met to discuss the gap of regulation on nanotechnologies and the impact this has on industries. The attendees discussed the issue of corporate responsibility, voluntary schemes, and communication requirements, both for researchers for academia and for industry.


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.
