NanoCode International Conference
Promoting Responsible Innovation: The Future of the European Code of Conduct for Nanotechnologies
29th September 2011 - Hotel Silken Berlaymont, Brussels
Key objectives of the FP7 Nanocode Project have included:
- facilitating a broad stakeholder dialogue in Member States and other selected countries aimed at identifying perspective and attitudes, opportunities and limits of the European Code of Conduct for Responsible Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies Research (the Code or CoC), considered key to support responsible innovation; and
- designing supporting tools aimed at supporting the CoC in a variety of ways.
The Conference will give interested parties a first-hand opportunity to shape the definitive versions of the Master Plan and CodeMeter, the new tools developed by NanoCode to support further implementation of the Code, and to influence the future revision of the Code by the European Commission (EC).
It will also provide insight on practices and policies at international level to figure out a global framework for responsible innovation.
This event is taking place with the active participation of EC representatives, in the context of major reflections regarding the choice of new instruments for delivering the commitments taken in the Innovation Union communication from the EC (notably the setting up for 2014 of the European Research Area) and for tackling the societal challenges indicated in the Europe 2020.
