nanologue After a 21-month period of research, consultations and dialogue the EU-funded project Nanologue came to an end. Nanologue’s overarching objective was to help establish a common understanding concerning social, ethical and legal aspects of nanotechnology applications and to facilitate a Europe-wide dialogue among science, business and civil society about its benefits and potential impacts. Project design Nanologue composed of three main steps. In a first project phase key findings from a Mapping Study on ethical, legal and social aspects (ELSA) of nanotechnologies were summarized and a Background Paper on the application areas energy conversion and storage, food packaging and medical diagnosis compiled. The second phase resulted in a study on Opinions on the ethical, legal and social aspects of nanotechnologies based on the consultation of representatives from research, business and civil society. nanologue
10-2 (2004): Bridging the Gaps: Science Fiction in Nanotechnology José López* Abstract: This paper argues that narrative elements from the science fiction (SF) literary genre are used in the discourse of Nanoscience and Technology (NST) to bridge the gap between what is technically possible today and its inflated promises for the future. The argument is illustrated through a detailed discussion of two NST texts. The paper concludes by arguing that the use of SF narrative techniques poses serious problems to the development of a critical analysis of the ethical and social implications of NST. Keywords: nanoscience and technology, ethical and social implications, science fiction, extrapolation. 10-2 (2004): Bridging the Gaps: Science Fiction in Nanotechnology
