Wider society involvement 'crucial' for research and innovation

Abstract:
To avoid lost opportunities and suspicion with regards R&D in the future, the report urges more societal engagement and open dialogue on emerging research fields such as nanotechnology and therapeutic food additives.

The report thus gives a set of recommendations to the research community on how to engage in a sustained dialogue with the public. This dialogue would then help researchers take societal questions and concerns more into account in their work.
