Engaging and debating nanotechnology on media channels to European citizens

NanoChannelsLogo_Final-01.jpg

NANOCHANNELS will design and undertake a programme of communication, dialogue, and engagement in issues of nanotechnology (NT) aimed at European citizens. The processes of this project will provide stakeholders and the lay public with opportunities to engage in NT debates, which will build trust and contribute to achieving a social consensus in the development and implementation of NT.

NANOCHANNELS has assembled a strong Consortium with partners experienced in mass media, educational methodology and science communication, as well as organisations highly suited and experienced in arranging outreach and communication activities for the public and schools. Nanochannels is coordinated by the Israeli educational network ORT.


The aim of NANOCHANNELS is to undertake a well-designed programme of communication, engagement and debate, which will:

 

  1. Inform and communicate with stakeholders and the European lay public using a mix of media, web, and live channels about innovations and controversies associated with nanotechnologies.
  2. Facilitate and encourage stakeholders and the public to participate in dialogues, debate concerning the innovation, applications, risks, ethical, legal and societal aspects of NT
  3. Engage the European public as a step towards the negotiation of a responsible consensus and building social trust concerning NT issues.

Achieving these objectives will enable the partners to deliver sound recommendations to the European Commission concerning governance and best practice for communication of NT issues within the EU.
