This is your space to learn more about the role civil society organisations’ (CSOs’) play in the NANO2ALL project, develop or deepen your knowledge of the advances and concerns in regard of nanotechnology development and read about selected recommendations elaborated in the NANO2ALL project.
Let’s get started!
CSOs and NANO2ALL
Several civil society organisations have engaged with NANO2ALL and participated in its activities. Their contributions help the project identify the needs, values and concerns of society that matter when it comes to new nanotechnology developments. Integrating these into the Research and Innovation process is an essential part of the Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) approach that NANO2ALL promotes.
Connect with the project on social media for live debates and online discussions, and we will make sure to bring your needs and concerns to the relevant policy makers, researchers and other groups.
