Les nanotechnologies: Vers où nous portent-elles ? Donnez votre avis


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.

À propos de nanopinion

  • nanopinion est un projet financé par la Communauté Européenne, rassemblant 17 partenaires de 11 pays qui a pour objectif de suivre l’opinion publique sur ce que nous attendons de l’innovation apportée par les nanotechnologies. Le projet s’adresse aux citoyens avec une attention particulière aux groupes difficiles à ciblées. Ce sont des personnes qui ne sont généralement pas consultées et ne donnent pas directement leur opinion sur les nanotechnologies.
  • Ledialogue est facilité en ligne et dans les ateliers de sensibilisation dans les 30 pays avec différents types de participation.
  • Afin de favoriser un débat informé, nous lançons également une campagne dans la presse et sur les médias sociaux et nous proposons un répertoire contenant plus de 150 ressources.
