The NANO2ALL Roadmap is here!

  • Report

It took over three years, long hours of research and a series of dialogues in 6 countries and consultations with stakeholders at the European level, but the NANO2ALL consortium is proud to introduce its Roadmap. This document, meant primarily for decision-takers and policy-makers at the European and national levels, outlines trajectories and actions that – according to NANO2ALL’s analysis of the field – should be taken to foster Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) and social engagement in nanotechnology research & innovation.

And it comes none too soon! At the dawn of the next European Union Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, Horizon Europe, it is more important than ever to highlight the relevance and the necessity of science engagement; Ecsite released a dedicated position paper asking for strong science engagement in Horizon Europe and is carrying out advocacy toward this end.

So, whether you’re trying to engage your local policymakers, looking for ways to work with stakeholders or just curious about the future of nanotech and emerging technologies in Europe, this is the resource for you. And if you don’t have the time to read the whole document, that’s alright – we have a shortened version available too. Stay tuned and good reading!

Project

NANO2ALL

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!
