NanoDiode

The European FP7 Project NanoDiode is asking European citizens on their views on nanotechnologies and priorities for responsible innovation in its latest online survey. The Survey is available in 10 different languages and aims at non-experts with the objective to generate in-depth knowledge of public preferences for nanotechnologies in order to enable responsive policy-making.

 

 

A major goal of the project commenced in July 2013 is to combine stakeholder and public engagement to establish an innovative, coordinated programme for outreach and dialogue throughout Europe. It looks to map European citizens' preferences and priorities for fields of nano-innovation, and their hopes and concerns, when it comes to nanotechnologies.

It integrates engagement activities along the innovation value chain: By combining 'upstream' public engagement (by way of dialogues that integrate societal needs and expectations into the policy debate) with 'midstream' engagement (by organising open innovation workshops at the level of R&D) and 'downstream' strategies for education and communication.
