The AVICENN association

AVICENN is an association whose purpose is to monitor and provide civic information on the issues related to nanoscience and nanotechnology. We exercise a citizen’s watch, propose transversal and independent information on nanomaterials and act for more transparency and vigilance in the nano field.

We research, compile and analyze information on nanotechnology and disseminate it widely in order to promote understanding of the issues and controversies to as wide an audience as possible.  We use this website, veillenanos.fr, and related social networks: twitterfacebookLinkedin as well as other media: books, comics, interviews, etc.

VeilleNanos.fr

AVICENN’s VeilleNanos website provides information on nanos and the associated risks.

Addressing citizens’ concerns, the site provides comprehensive information based on reliable, verified and documented elements.

The independent and multidisciplinary information is accessible to a wide audience.
