2015 - 2019

What are benefits and risks of advancing nanotechnology research? What are the expectations and concerns of the different people impacted by the development of this fast-growing field? Could we gather this knowledge and design recommendations to shape future policies that will drive these advancements in a more responsible way? This is what NANO2ALL is about: promoting mutual learning, informed dialogue and societal engagement in responsible nanotechnology. Stay tuned!

2015 - 2018

Coordinated by Ecsite, Sparks is an ambitious engagement project on the topic of technology shifts in health and medicine. Its aim is to raise awareness and communicate the concept of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) to Europeans in 29 countries.

2013 - 2017

This project engaged stakeholders and the public in an open dialogue concerning synthetic biology’s potential benefits and risks and explored possibilities for its “collaborative shaping” on the basis of public participation. Ecsite brought together stakeholders to share expertise, learn from each other and develop a common understanding of crucial aspects of synthetic biology, later used to create and deliver public engagement activities.

2012 - 2015

KiiCS ended at the end of January 2015: the last month was dedicated to reporting and ensuring the project’s legacy. Nine art-science-business innovation incubators were created thanks to KiiCS, and some of the project ideas developed by participants are living on and might turn into businesses in the future. A great arts & science incubation guide is available to all online.

2010 - 2014

Visions for the cities of scientific culture. PLACES facilitated a three-way conversation between science, policy makers and society in Europe. It resulted in a vision for science policy at city level and hundreds of interconnected local networks.
