Carl Sagan stated over 30 years ago that “We live in a society exquisitely dependent on science and technology, in which hardly anyone knows anything about science and technology.”
How does this statement sit within the remit of nanotechnology and nanoparticles today? This interactive presentation and debate will assess our current ‘dependency’ on nanotechnology and its products and also highlight some of the ongoing work in this research space within the MUSIQ Consortium and efforts to generate smart disease targeting nanotherapeutics.
Under the title – Nano Technology, Opportunity or Threat – MUSIQ is organising an Open Science Debate at the Politecnico di Milano, room 3.1.3 on 23 March 2023 , 17:30-19:30. This session open to the public is aimed at promoting the outputs of MUSIQ to the public, and to better understand the public’s interest in priorities for science and technology. The debate will be kicked off with a presentation Arwyn Tomos Jones from Cardiff University on Nanotechnology and Nanoparticles: from environmental harm to future therapies. After the presentation the public will have the opportunity to ask questions directly to our MUSIQ early stage researchers.
