Enabling co-creation in nanotechnologies
As the GoNano project draws to a close, it is taking time to reflect on its many successes. High on the list of positive outcomes are the relationships that GoNano and its partners have established with other EU projects, e.g. Harvestore.
This report provides an assessment of the co-creation process established by the European project GoNano.
This report consists of a literature review where issues of gender, culture and communication is investigated, followed by an analysis in which the public current discourse around nanotechnology is mapped.
This report describes the methodological approach and the outcomes of the first set of interviews with important stakeholders of the R&I value chain.
Research and innovation can benefit from being open to the public. Early and continuous engagement is key to sustainable, desirable and acceptable innovations, in which R&I is aligned with the values, needs and expectations of society. One area in particular is nanotechnology research and innovation. Nanotechnology encompasses a wide range of technological developments in areas … Continued
This report is about the development of background material for the stakeholder workshops in the pilot countries Spain, Czech Republic and the Netherlands.
In November, the second stakeholder workshop on health was organized in the Netherlands. Sixteen stakeholders from research, policy, business, CSOs, and citizens, deliberated on how important public values, such as well-being, responsible use of health data, and industry-research relations, can be taken into account in the development of nanotechnologies for health. The workshop was part … Continued
