What is the NanoCode Project?
NanoCode is a European project, funded under the "Capacities – Science in Society" area of Framework Programme 7, with the overall objective of gathering information about knowledge and perception of the European Commission's European Code of Conduct for Responsible Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies Research (CoC), and developing tools to improve understanding, implementation and use of the CoC amongst companies and organisations carrying out such research activities.
What is the CoC?
The European Commission's Recommendation for European Code of Conduct for Responsible Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies Research (CoC) collects together a set of principles, based on concepts and values that have emerged in recent years concerning the governance and ethics of nanotechnologies. It was developed to promote the principles that should underpin research activities, interaction amongst key stakeholders and, in general, "good governance" for the responsible development of nanotechnologies. The European Commission has encouraged voluntary adoption of the CoC by relevant national and regional authorities, employers and research funding bodies, researchers, and individual or civil society organisations involved or interested in nanosciences and nanotechnologies research.
