NANO2ALL citizen dialogue methodology demonstrated at ECSITE 2017

Tue, 20/06/2017

The NANO2ALL citizen dialogue methodology was demonstrated at Ecsite Annual Conference 2017 (www.ecsite.eu) at the session “Unleashing citizen contributions to “science for all””. This session provided the opportunity to science communicators and others to experiment writing narratives on future situations related to the nano enabled objects, that were previously created by citizens in the NANO2ALL citizen dialogues. This helped reflect on values, concerns and needs around these objects.
