Nanotechnologies: Where should they take us? Have your say

NT Virtual dialogue (11-13 Years and 14-18 years)

The ObservatoryNANO report on the technology sector Environment summarises the technologies and applications used for the treatment of air, water and soil (Mueller and Nowack, 2009). This EHS analysis considers those nanomaterials outlined within the context of their application and provides a summary of what is known in relation to potential hazard of and exposure to the material in question. Finally, the analysis outlines some key EHS considerations and basic guidance for those developing or using the technologies outlined within the report.


The NANOYOU project aimed to increase young people’s basic understanding on nanotechnologies (NT) and to engage in the dialogue about its ethical, legal and social aspects (ELSA) through a strong school program for students aged 11-18 and a wide range of activities in Science Centres for those aged 18-25

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.
