How do we understand the potential benefits, impacts and risks of nanotechnology? Last year researchers with the DEEPEN (Deepening Ethical Engagement and Participation in Emerging Nanotechnologies) project at IHRR, brought together some members of the public, policy makers, scientists and industrialists to discuss where should nanotechnology go next? and who should be involved in directing its development? The video below is an example of some of the materials produced from this project. Also, check out the links below for other outputs from the DEEPEN project, especially their final report:
