CSPO to examine nanotechnology and society

from the ambitious-projects dept.
The Center for Science, Policy, and Outcomes (CSPO) has chosen to focus on the societal impacts of nanotechnology as one of the projects in its program examining the public value of science for enhancing the benefits of new knowledge and innovation.
According to a very brief note on the CSPO website, "CSPO's Nanotechnology and Society Project will integrate social impacts research with nanotechnology research to create better linkages between research agendas and desired societal outcomes. The project will develop tools and methods to map and assess the societal implications of nanoscale science and engineering; enhance awareness of societal implications among both the public and the S&T community; and develop processes that can support actual scientific and societal decision making about the direction and application of nanotechnology."
