Understanding Public Debate on Nanotechnologies
Source: European Commission – Publication date: January 2010
This publication consists of a series of research articles on the nature of public debate on nanosciences and nanotechnologies, and the ways in which deliberative approaches could lead to better governance of these technologies. The authors of these articles were involved (as coordinators or participants) in a number of now completed European Commission-funded 'Science in Society' projects.
