Nanotechnologies: Where should they take us? Have your say

The environmental impacts of nanosilver: an earthworms point of view (NanOpinion video)

The topic of the video is nanosilver, a nanomaterial used in many consumer products as anti-bacterial agent, and the potential impact its release can have in the environment. The story is told by a PhD student at iNANO, Yuya, who is currently studying the effect of nanosilver on earthworms.

The aim is therefore not only to show the type of experiments researchers are doing to answer the question "is nanosilver safe?", and the results they are getting, but also the life of a young researcher, and what it means to chose this type of career, the interdisciplinary nature of nanoscience research, and the team work that is needed to perform these types of studies. I hope you find the video informative and useful for your school activities.

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.
