Public perception of nanotechnology


Burri, Regula Valérie; Bellucci, Sergio (2008). Public perception of nanotechnology. Journal of Nanoparticle Research, 10(3):387-391.

Abstract

While several studies on the public opinion of nanotechnology have pointed to a rather enthusiastic U.S. public, the public uptake of nanotechnology in Europe is more contained. The results of the Swiss publifocus on nanotechnology reveal a pragmatic attitude of citizens toward the emerging technologies, thus confirming what has been identified as a "balanced approach” in the NanoJury UK
