Project description:

SeeingNano is supported by the European Union under the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme for Research and Innovation. SeeingNano creates visualisation tools for enhanced nanotechnology knowledge and awareness of risks and benefits of nanotechnological applications. Through a coordinated approach leading experts collaborate in the relevant fields: the target audiences are analysed by social scientists, who - in collaboration with information visualisation experts - elaborate on appropriate tools to address the respective audiences. The scientific and technical content is provided by experts on nano-phenomena in collaboration with experts on nanotoxicology and risk communication. The target audiences include diverse segments of European publics such as journalists, teachers, youngsters and retirees.
