This report describes the design and outcomes of the citizen workshops organised in the Netherlands, the Czech Republic and Spain.
On a Saturday morning in November, 50 citizens from all over the Netherlands came to the Designlab at the University of Twente to discuss the future of nanotechnology in healthcare. They were eager to give their views on how a desirable healthcare system using nanotechnologies can look like in the future. How will it be … Continued
Finally, after months of preparation, GoNano partners got their chance to interact with the general public and discuss key issues related to nanotechnology research. The focus was thematically different for each of the three pilot partners running the workshops: Food, in the Czech Republic; Energy, in Spain; and Health, in The Netherlands. The partners at … Continued
During the autumn of 2018 three citizen workshops were held in the Czech Republic, Spain and the Netherlands. More than 100 people with different backgrounds expressed their wishes, concerns and relevant messages to stakeholders as input for future nanotechnology applications. Workshop participants were asked to give their views on future uses of nanotechnologies, discussion questions … Continued
This report outlines the process for developing information materials for the GoNano citizens workshops taking place in the fall of 2018 on future nanotechnology for Health in the Netherlands, Energy in Spain and Food in the Czech Republic.
It is a moody autumn Saturday morning, participants slowly enter the historic building of the Academy of Sciences, where the first Czech citizens´ consultation about nanotechnology and its impacts is being held under the work frame of the European Horizon 2020 project GoNANO. The lobby welcomes participants with questions such as: “Would the nanotechnologies help … Continued
These brochures were made as background material to prepare the citizen workshops of the three pilots: health, energy and food. They contain basic information about nanotechnologies and the needs, concerns and values related to possible future applications of nanotechnology. The aim of the workshop with the citizens is to examine future visions of concrete nanotechnology … Continued
This consultation will take place in the Czech Republic, therefore the following text is only available in Czech. Naše společnost čelí stále rostoucímu počtu obyvatel, a tím i tlaku na produkci dostatečného množství potravin. Dalším problémem je znečištění potravin způsobené pěstitelskými a výrobními postupy (např. pesticidy) nebo znečištění potravinových obalů (např. mikročásticemi z plastů). S … Continued
Researchers have designed a rapid nano-filter that can clean dirty water over 100 times faster than current technology. Simple to make and simple to scale up, the technology harnesses naturally occurring nano-structures that grow on liquid metals. The RMIT University and the University of New South Wales (UNSW) researchers behind the innovation have shown it … Continued
Soms hebben de kleinste dingen de grootste invloed Nanotechnologie is de technologie die in staat is om materie te veranderen op ongelooflijk kleine schaal, op het niveau van atomen en moleculen. Materialen kunnen zo compleet nieuwe eigenschappen krijgen en dat heeft invloed op de wereld om ons heen. Onderzoekers en ingenieurs werken al aan ramen … Continued
