Democratic technologies? The final report of the Nanotechnology Engagement Group

Abstract:
The Nanotechnology Engagement Group, a UK group established to support public bodies in developing a wider programme of social and ethical research and public dialogue around nanotechnology, has released its final report titled "Democratic technologies?"

This is the final report of the Nanotechnologies Engagement Group (NEG), a body convened by Involve with the support of the Office of Science and Innovation's Sciencewise scheme, and the Universities of Cambridge and Sheffield. Their role has been to observe and support the pioneers of nanotechnology public engagement and log their experiences for the benefit of future journeys into the interface between democracy and technology.
