Nano2All in JRC-FTA 2018 Conference

Nano2All project participated in the Joint Research Centre Future-oriented Technology Analysis (JRC-FTA) Conference 2018.

Eight participants joined the Nano2All demonstration of the Scenario Exploration System(SES) on Nanomedicine (, during the JRC-FTA 2018 ( conference “Future in the making”, 4-5 June 2018 in Brussels.

The participants laid out their strategies for development of nanomedicine in five, ten and fifteen years’ time, in a “co-operative” process. Five participants took the roles of a policymaker, a large pharmaceutical company director, two No-Nano activists and a nanoscientist. One journalist reported on the evolution during each round, after which two public voices decided which strategy received most support. The participants gained hands-on experience with the SES-tool, and some said they would use the tool in the future, e.g. to train students.

During the event, Director General Vladimir Šucha of the JRC officially announced its new Competence Centre on Foresight. Duncan Cass-Beggs (OECD), Riel Miller (UNESCO) and Ricardo Borges de Castro (European Political Strategy Centre) offered to collaborate. Info:
