Give your opinion on the Nanotechnology Research Code of Conduct
(Nanowerk News) The European Commission has opened a public consultation in order to receive input from all people and organisations involved or interested in nanosciences and nanotechnologies research in Europe, and notably research, policy makers, industry, media and civil society organisations.
On 7 February 2008, the European Commission adopted a recommendation for a Code of Conduct for Responsible Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies Research. This was followed on 26 September 2008 by Council Conclusions on Responsible Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies. Both documents suggested that the Commission recommendation and the Code of Conduct should be revised after two years. This is currently planned for February 2010. The results of this consultation will contribute to that.
