EU project develops nano-ethics education through summer schools

Abstract:
A new EU-funded project is organising summer schools on the ethics of nanotechnologies and converging technologies for the summer of 2008. The results will be used to develop new tools for e-learning.

'We would like to build on the work the European Commission is currently undertaking on developing a Code of Conduct for nanotechnology research in Europe,' Dr. Ineke Malsch, the coordinator of the project, told CORDIS News.

Taking the EU's forthcoming code of conduct for nanotechnology research as its basis, the ETHICSCHOOL project intends to disseminate the code through two summer schools, and to publish draft codes of conduct developed during these workshops.
