Arizona State University awarded $6.5 million to study nanotechnology and society
Date:10/14/2010

he capacity for social learning that informs about the available choices in decision making, and to engage in anticipatory governance of nanotechnology -- the ability of society and institutions to seek and understand a variety of inputs to manage emerging technologies while such management is still possible.

"The biggest question for the Center," said David Guston, director and principal investigator at CNS-ASU and professor of politics and global studies, "is how far anticipatory governance can take us, not only in guiding societal research but in assuring the responsible development of nanotechnologies." Guston also is the co-director of ASU's Consortium for Science, Policy and Outcomes (CSPO), which is CNS-ASU's parent organization.

Under the renewal, CNS-ASU will continue its collaborations with partner institutions Georgia Tech and University of Wisconsin to further two types of integrated research programs. First, its programs in "real-time technology assessment" (RTTA) a social science tool that relies on understanding the social, moral, political and economic dynamics of nanotechnologies work to understand the evolving dynamics of the nano enterprise, discern the changing perspectives of the public and scientists about nanotechnologies, and develop techniques to foster deliberation on future nanotechnology applications and integration of social and humanistic perspectives into nano-scale science and engineering.

The second set of programs are thematic research clusters (TRCs), which pursue fundamental knowledge on particular nano-and-society themes. The first TRC, continuing from the earlier award, focuses on issues in equity, equality and responsibility in the development of nanotechnologies. Under the renewal, CNS-ASU will initiate a new TRC, "Urban Design, Materials and the Built Environment," which will launch and complete a problem-oriented stakeholder analysis for the creation, dissemination and sustainable use of n
