"Spicy world of NanoScience"
Responsible innovation will play a central role in the European Commission's forthcoming €80 billion Framework Programme “Horizon 2020” as part of the EC's long-term vision of achieving “smart, sustainable and inclusive growth”.
This presents some challenges but also many opportunities, which those who are quick to embrace the new changes will be in a far better position to exploit. IoN has played a key role in the development of this new policy through the EU projects FramingNano and NanoCode, and we are offering our members, and other selected organizations, the opportunity to learn from this experience and from other opinion leaders at a one-day workshop in central London on the 31st of January 2012.
The workshop will provide you with a better understanding and the practical application of the various elements of responsible innovation including public engagement, risk management, life cycle analysis, ethical approval and regulatory aspects.
