ETC Group, an advocacy group issued a report recommending a halt to some nanotech activities. The report proposes a shutdown of all research and development of molecular manufacturing and reiterates its call for a moratorium on commercial production of new nanomaterials. The report also suggests creating an international forum for evaluating new technologies and a United Nations-led effort to monitor corporations involved in new technologies and their markets.

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.
