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.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at

Dr. András Paszternák, founder of Nanopaprika
