They span domains as diverse as computing, material science, medicine, energy production and storage, etc., bring together fields as varied as physics, chemistry, genetics, information and communication technologies, and cognitive sciences, and should become virtually ubiquitous before long.Nanotechnologies are with us already. Indeed, consumers are already being offered products manufactured with nanotechnologies including cosmetics, clothing, and sporting goods. But, while technology and market analysts alike expect the very small to become very big, nanotechnologies are still emerging.The "Mapping out Nano Risks" workshop represents a modest first step, albeit an important one, towards analyzing the potential risks of nanotechnologies and what they may implyMateria / lugar / evento: Nanotecnología Análisis de riesgos Etica social Riesgo tecnológico Otros autores: Comisión Europea
