This report is about the development of background material for the stakeholder workshops in the pilot countries Spain, Czech Republic and the Netherlands.
The background material presented in this report was developed for the first round of stakeholder workshops.These stakeholder workshops are part of a co-creation process where citizens and professional stakeholders (representatives from industry, policy, civil society and research) create suggestions for future nanotechnology products and research in the areas of ‘health’ (the Netherlands), ‘energy’ (Spain), and ‘food’ (Cech Republic). The goal of the co-creation process is to demonstrate how responsiveness to societal values, needs and concerns can be built into nanotechnology research and innovation processes resulting in products that are judged as socially desirable, sustainable, and acceptable.
Stakeholders that were invited to the stakeholder workshops received a personalized invitation in which the aims of GoNano and the purpose of engaging in the co-creation process was shortly explained. The information material provided also gave an overview of the overall co-creation process,and what was expected of their contributions during the workshop on page 2 and 3 of the information material. To make the GoNano co-creation process as transparent as possible, the infographic of the process was included, as well as the steps that will be taken after the stakeholder workshop. Furthermore, a short paragraph about the organizers of the workshops was included. This latter paragraph was adjusted to the pilot country.
