Nanotecnologías: ¿Hasta dónde nos deben llevar? Danos tu opinión


RiskCartography is an internet-based tool to map and visualize controversies. It has been developed by the Munich Institute for Social and Sustainability Research and the Environment Science Center of the Augsburg University in cooperation with the software company SouCon. The map is made of three sections: 1. “Protagonists” who are participating in the controversy with their own arguments and statements to different issues (e.g., NGOs, industry, and government); 2.”Things”: selected nanoscale substances or things that are discussed very intensely whether they are harmful or not.  For some substances (nanosilver, titanium dioxide, carbon nano tubes, carbon black) there is further information as well as a so called "substance story"; 3.”Matters of concerns” that focus on specific issues, questions or problems that are still unresolved. Thus these matters of concern are discussed from different perspectives and they are characterized by plenty of different arguments and statements from many protagonists. In this overview there are shown the most prominent issues and matters of concern dealing with risks of nanoscale materials. All information are available in English and German


MACOSPOL is a joint research enterprise that gathers scholars in science, technology and society across Europe. Its goal is to devise a collaborative platform to help students, professionals and citizens in mapping out scientific and technical controversies.

About nanopinion

  • nanopinion es un proyecto financiado por la CE en el que participan 17 socios de 11 países con el objetivo de realizar un seguimiento de la opinión pública sobre qué esperamos de la innovación con nanotecnologías. El proyecto está dirigido a los ciudadanos, poniendo un énfasis especial en aquellos grupos a los que es difícil llegar, es decir, personas que no estan muy familiarizadas con las nanotecnologías y tampoco acostumbran a ofrecer su opinión sobre este campo de primera mano.
  • Diálogo: se facilita por Internet y en eventos de difusión en 30 países que presentan diferentes formatos de participación.
  • Para promover un debate social informado, también realizamos una intensa campaña de prensa y redes sociales y ofrecemos un repositorio con más de 150 recursos.
