Be prepared for the NANO2ALL dialogue: train yourself
The NANO2ALL project stimulates societal engagement on responsible nanotechnology through face to face dialogue events and by offering an online platform. A novelty compared to earlier dialogues on nanotechnology is the offer of targeted training to all participants prior to engagement in the dialogue. This training aims to complete gaps in knowledge, in order to achieve a level playing field during the dialogue. This way, a lay person has as much chance to contribute as an expert in nanotechnology or in responsible research and innovation.
