Abstract

This project, funded through the European Unions 7 Framework Program (FP7) aims to build a deliberative process that allows nanotechnology stakeholders to engage in an ongoing dialogue about the regulation of nanotechnology development. The four main aims of the project include; (1) an analysis and review of existing-proposed regulatory and governance processes, (2) the collection and analysis of positions and needs of stakeholders, enacted through a two-stage Delphi Panel and a dedicated International Workshop, (3) the design of an appropriate proposal of a Governance Plan, through consultation of experts and a debate among all stakeholders in a dedicated International Conference, and (4, a capillary action of communication and dissemination of information on the project and nanoscience and nanotechnology governance. The website of this project includes recent news updates on the project and related efforts. The project is led by AIRI/Nanotec IT (Italy) and includes: The Innovation Society (Switzerland), The Institute of Nanotechnology-IoN (UK), National Institute for Public Health & the Environment- RIVM (The Netherlands), Fondation EurActiv (Belgium), Technology Centre (Czech Republic).
