Drawing on 2.5 years of work, 8,330 questionnaires, data from 10 participatory workshops and more than 40 street events, nanOpinion concluded in 2014. It painted a precise picture of European citizen’s perception of nanotechnologies. 

nanOpinion was an EC-funded project that brought together 17 partners from 11 countries with the aim of monitoring public opinion on what we expect from innovation with nanotechnologies. In order to carry out this study, different modes of public participation were organised. The project was aimed at citizens with a special focus on hard-to-reach target groups, i.e. people who do not actively show interest in science.

At the end of the project, findings and recommendations were reported to policy makers from different institutions including the European Commission. The public participation methodology was made available to the public so that it can be used as a reference for future projects promoted under the EC Framework Programme Horizon 2020, in which the Commission aimed to promote “Responsible Research and Innovation” counting on the participation of citizens.
