NanoJury UK to give verdict on nanotech

Greenpeace UK and Interdisciplinary Research Collaboration (IRC) in Nanotechnology at Cambridge University have set up a “Citizen’s Jury” to review risks and opportunities and give a “verdict” on nanotechnology by mid-September. Doug Parr, of Greenpeace, said: “We want to provide an opportunity for people to give their perspectives…at a time when we hope they can still make a difference.” The jury members are described as “randomly-chosen people from different backgrounds”. But who picked the backgrounds? I do like the top goal of the IRC: “Fabrication of complex 3 dimensional structures with molecular precision.” (Credit: Judy Conner)
