International multi-stakeholder dialogue platform framing the responsible development of nanosciences and nanotechnologies (NS&T)


Potential risks for the environment and human health related to the application and use, or misuse, of nano-related products are intrinsically intertwined with the opportunities offered by nanotechnology.

A completely new multidimensional approach to risk appraisal and management is needed. Cooperation, coordination and communication between all the actors in nanotechnology are vital to promote a proactive and adaptive process capable of framing nanotechnology development across known and accepted boundaries.
