This report explores the potential for a ‘business case’ for co-creation in nanotechnology research and innovation, building on the findings of the co-creation activities in the European project GoNano (Governing Nanotechnologies through Societal Engagement). The overall objective of the GoNano project was to improve the responsiveness of research and innovation processes to public values and … Continued
Enabling co-creation in nanotechnologies
Dig into the lessons learned and outcomes of the GoNano project with this interactive brochure.
The GoNano YouTube channel offers a wealth of information and materials GoNano produced over de years.
The EU-funded GoNano project enables co-creation between citizens, researchers, industry, civil society organisations and policy makers across Europe to align future nanotechnologies with societal needs and concerns.
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
In recent years it is largely discussed that developments in science and technology do not take place independently from the society. As a response a wide range of projects has been initiated to assess nanotechnology, measuring the effects of nanoparticles on human and environmental health and exploring possible future scenarios with citizens and stakeholders. Especially … Continued
The GoNano project used an online questionnaire to gathering input from citizens for innovation in nanotechnology in the areas Food, Energy and Health.
These brochures were made as background material to prepare the stakeholder workshops of the three pilots: health, energy and food. They contain basic information about the project, nanotechnologies and the needs, concerns and values from the citizen workshops. The workshops took place in the Netherlands, Spain and the Czech Republic. The objectives of the workshop … 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
