Working and living with nanotechnologies – European NanoCap conference

On 2 April 2009, European Trade Unions and Environmental NGOs presented their positions on nanotechnologies at the European Parliament. In subsequent panel discussions these positions were submitted to an exchange of opinions with Members of European Parliament, representatives from the European Commission, industry, consumer associations, and the scientific community. The discussions mainly focused on options for European policies and priorities for the responsible development of nanotechnologies, especially regarding environmental and workplace safety. The conference gathered 250 participants from 32 countries in Europe, North America, Middle East and Africa.
