Join the debate
Our aim with Nano&me is to provide balanced, easy to understand information about nanotechnology and be the hub of debate for everyone to discuss the important issues which arise from its use. Visit the site and let us know what you think…. www.nanoandme.org
If you would like to link to the site or discuss partnering with us to use the site as part of your own public involvement projects contact Hilary Sutcliffe on [email protected]
We apologise that some of the links on the site may not work. The UK government gave us a grant for this pilot site. We are currently fundraising to bring the site up to date and create the hub for debate that we think is so important.
Please contact [email protected] if you can help us!
What we do:
We engage on specific and systematic issues:
- Considering the issues and potential implications of individual new technologies, in particular – nanotechnology, synthetic biology, and so called ‘converging tech’ (including nano, biotech, information tech, genomics and cognitive science) together with aspects of geoengineering.
- Involvement with issues which arise from particular applications of these technologies, eg the role of nano in food, ethical aspects of specific human enhancements.
- Contributing to debates about the wider systemic issues of responsible innovation, such as governance, safety, public involvement, research and policy.
