Nanochannels – Public dialogue on Nanotechnology

The Nanochannels project is a unique public experiment of democratic dialogue in action about the new industrial revolution that could change the face of medicine, energy production and water purification, electronics, materials and security. Nanotechnology, handling the building blocks of life and matter, finally gets debated and scrutinized across a range of mainstream – both online and printed – European daily newspapers, national radio and social media.

It is a real first, with students and stakeholders, such as the industry, NGOs, consumers and the general public, at the forefront. People obviously require new cutting-edge knowledge to make up their mind, and Nanochannels addresses this need through its own unique variety of social interactions, which are designed to cast its net as wide as possible. Such variety includes public round tables, live school debates, a range of expert opinion blogs, online social networking and talkback via online press microsites.
