Die in diesem Buch behandelten Themen reichen von der examine der bestehenden gesetzlichen Maßnahmen (Hard legislation) bis hin zu Instrumenten mit eher freiwilligem Charakter. Darüber hinaus ist auch der öffentliche Diskurs über Nanotechnologien von Interesse wie er etwa in den Medien geführt wird. Dieses Buch gibt einen Überblick über verschiedene Ansätze der Nano Risiko Governance, wobei sowohl wissenschaftliche als auch behördliche Standpunkte präsentiert werden.
Nanotechnologie wird oft als die „Schlüsseltechnologie“ des 21. Jahrhunderts bezeichnet. Die Erwartungshaltung hinsichtlich innovativer Produkte und neuer Marktpotenziale ist nach wie vor hoch. Produkte mit neuen Funktionalitäten oder revolutionäre Entwicklungen im Bereich der Medizin sollen in Zukunft unser Leben verbessern. Neben möglichen Vorteilen bedürfen aber auch allfällige Risiken künstlich hergestellter Nanomaterialien einer eingehenden Betrachtung und stehen daher zunehmend im Fokus der Forschung. Wie bei allen neuen Technologien stellt sich auch bei den Nanotechnologien die Frage, wie die Gesellschaft mit ihnen umgehen und zu welchen Zwecken sie sie einsetzen soll. Dieser gesellschaftliche Umgang mit möglichen Gefahren (Risiko Governance) ist sowohl auf nationaler als auch auf EU-Ebene von unterschiedlichen Ansätzen und Regulierungskulturen geprägt.
