Introduction of Part 2: Integrating Stakeholder Collaboration. Sverker Molander, Chalmers University of Technology

 

Aims: Stakeholders to share how they develop nanomaterials to generate innovation that is safe for human and environment – all phases - from laboratory to commercialization. 

Moderators: Sari Scheinberg and Sverker Molander, Chalmers University of Technology

13:45
What is the present situation regarding perceptions of risks and possibilities for safe nanotech innovation?

 

What does stakeholder need to support their process and what do they experience and what hinders their development, learning, control and feedback?

This is discussed from different perspectives; branch organization, regulator, social scientist perspective (risk perception), scientist perspective.
