What is the role of public authorities?

Info sheet

By the AVICENN team – Last modification January 2023

The issue of nanotechnology – or that of environmental health in general – has not been established as a public policy in its own right. Governance is split between Europe and Member States, between risk assessors and risk managers and public stakeholders.

This dossier explores the issues of institutional governance of nanotechnology and gives an overview of the panorama in which associations and civil society experts are evolving. It will evolve, as we continue to monitor, synthesize and, in particular, integrate your contributions.

Any questions or comments? This information sheet compiled by AVICENN is intended to be completed and updated. Please feel free to contribute.
