Method and manuals for the pilot studies**
The present report sets out the co-creation methodology for the GoNano (Governing Nanotechnologies through societal engagement) project. The methodology builds on previous experiences working with (public) engagement and multiple stakeholders in EU and national projects for developing innovation processes that are responsive to societal needs and concerns (Shelley-Egan et al. 2018). Cultures, values and ways of communicating differ across Europe1. GoNano has therefore also sought to take into account gender, and differences in culture and communication in the design of its methodology (Moore et al. 2018).
The methodology combines a series of face to face workshops with an online meeting space (EngageSuite). First suggestions for manuals and templates for the face-to-face meetings are provided for the co-creation pilot partners to develop their part of the online meeting space.
