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 with the stakeholders are to:
- Explore ways how actors which are normally not directly involved with the design of nanotechnology products can best have their needs and concerns heard by actors who are directly involved with research, design or development of nanotechnology enabled products.
- Demonstrate how continuous and ongoing co-creative deliberative processes between actors, involved and not directly involved with nanotechnology innovation, can generate design suggestions which align research & innovation with values, needs and expectations of society during early-stage product development (TRL 2-5).
- Evaluate and demonstrate how these co-creative deliberative processes contribute to public and mutual understanding of nanotechnology and how they contribute to building trust between citizens, public and private institutions.
- Evaluate and demonstrate how these co-creative deliberative processes contribute to increased confidence of companies to invest in new (nano-enabled) technologies.
