Public Awareness and Engagement

The Public Awareness and Engagement Program seeks to provide balanced and factual information on enabling technologies to allow the public to make more informed choices about emerging technologies. The program activities include running public forums, creating information and education materials, and developing feedback mechanisms such as regular public attitude surveys.

Focusing on Nanotechnologies and Biotechnologies, the Public Awareness and Community Engagement Program seeks to inform the public about emerging technologies using innovative best practice in science communications.
