EU Nanotechnology Projects in Action in Munich at ESOF2006

The European Union's exhibition area at ESOF2006 features nanotechnology research as an up-to- date example of how science and communication can and have to work together. Visitors will be able to take a closer look at major achievements from the science of the small, talk to leading scientists and communicators, participate in the demonstrations and contribute to the nanodebate.

Two of the projects are of particular interest to young people. They will be able to play the game developed by DECIDE to get involved in political decision-making in nanotechnology, while DOTIK will demonstrate to them a new training scheme for young science presenters. Nanologue will disseminate information and the related NanoDialogue project that is currently presenting an exhibition on social aspects of nanotechnology at the Deutsches Museum will also take part in the demonstrations.

Two other projects on show Cornea Engineering and Safer - represent nanomedical research and Antistorm provides one of the first insights into the science of "man-made" weather in Europe.

Journalists attending ESOF2006 are invited for a press reception with the project demonstrators on Tuesday, 18 July at 12:00 at the Publications Office stand No 25.

These projects on show are funded by three different funding programmes within the 6th Framework Programme for Research and Technical Development:

  • Nanotechnologies, Materials and Production Technologies (NMP): Cornea Engineering, Nanologue and NanoDialogue
  • Science and Society : Decide and Dotik
  • New and Emerging Science and Technologies (NEST) : Antistorm and Safer
