Christine Peterson: Here are Foresight we’ve been doing “public participation” in nanotechnology since long before any national nanotech initiatives were started. So of course we are strongly in favor of nanoliteracy. The more the public understands nanotechnologies and the nanosciences on which they are based, the better, both for the economy and public policy.
So it may be surprising that we are uneasy with the developing area of public participation in nanotechnology, as described in a Nature Biotechnology piece titled Building nanoliteracy in the university and beyond.
