ITAS in cooperation with EMPA St. Gallen is organizing a one day workshop about risk perception, risk assessment and risk communication in the field of Nanotechnology. The workshop is mainly addressed to risk researchers, technology assessment experts, policy makers, sociologists, philosophers. The participation of researchers working in nanoscience or nanotechnologies is welcome. The workshop will take place on December 8, 2004, at Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe.
The aim of the workshop is to structure the fields of risk research and risk evaluation with respect to nanotechnology, to provide a platform for an exchange of results about these topics, to identify new research questions and to provide an opportunity for networking among interested researchers and their respective organisations. The general purpose could be a "situation appreciation" and a discussion of research priorities, taking the perspectives of different disciplines and key actors into account.
