A world without nano? Soon hard to imagine
Date:5/27/2011

in the field of nanotechnology, research into the implications of the nanosciences has been an integral part of the development process, taking the form of a stakeholder dialogue. Currently in Germany, a "catalogue" listing both the beneficial and detrimental aspects of nano products and their applications is being created. According to Catenhusen, one of the main reasons why genetic technology met with such little public acceptance was the fact that the industry did not develop a "User Exploitation Strategy". "We really can't afford to make such a serious mistake a second time," Catenhusen maintained.

In order to make the potential which nanotechnology offers accessible to society while keeping the public fully informed of the possible risks of certain applications requires efforts by the research community, confirmed Urs Hofmann, a senior executive member of the government of Canton Aargau. This is exactly where the Swiss NanoConvention can make an important contribution, he added. Hofmann emphasized attempts to establish the event as a permanent national forum which would include internationally respected experts. "By holding the Swiss NanoConvention the research community is sending out a strong message that it is capable of organizing itself in a beneficial way and of unifying its abilities at the national level. This is an important signal which will raise awareness and understanding of nanotechnology and the nanosciences, in particular among the political community."
