'Science and politics do not always dance together easily,' said Dutch MEP Dorette Corbey, speaking on the first day of the European Forum on Nanosciences in Brussels on 19 October.
When the science in question has evoked some controversy, politicians and scientists can be even less in step. But both were present at the forum, and dancing to the same tune as they examined the potential of nanoscience and nanotechnology, raising awareness of this relatively young field, and risk and risk perception.
Mr. Carrada listed other lessons learned from GMOs as: the source rather than the content of information will either win or lose the public's trust; uncertainties must be acknowledged; citizens should be involved upstream; technologies should not be regarded as machines.
