Asking the relevant questions about public participation

by Brice Laurent. Participatory experiments in nanotechnology have been numerous, but their outcomes are uncertain. Some have criticized the little interest these mechanisms have received in policy circles. The Grenoble case is telling for that matter. - More More

European Food Safety Authority is launching a public consultation

EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) is launching a public consultation on its draft scientific opinion on the Potential Risks Arising from Nanoscience and Nanotechnologies on Food and Feed safety and the Environment. The work follows a request from the European Commission (EC) to EFSA for advice on this issue in 2007. EFSA's opinion will help inform consideration of any future EU measures in relation to nanotechnologies in the food and feed area. - More More

Responsibility in Innovation: A Survey of Coming Attractions in Nanotechnology

A Conversation with Lawrence Gasman Lawrence Gasman is the cofounder of NanoMarkets, LLC and author of the recent book, Nanotechnology Applications and Markets, which examines the market for nanotechnology in the healthcare, energy, and information technology sectors, and provides a generalized approach to forecasting the impact of nanotechnology on particular companies and industries. In this interview, Gasman emphasizes several likely near term discontinuities based on nanotechnology. And he offers some insight into possible social effects, and the limits of regulation. And yet without an ability to forecast developments, what kind of responsibility is possible? - More More
