Final Report - NANOMED ROUND TABLE (Nanomedicine ethical, regulatory, social and economic environment)

Project ID: 218732
Funded under: FP7-NMP

Abstract

Nanomedicine is the application of nanotechnology in medicine and healthcare at the molecular level. Although very promising, it may add new dimensions to various ethical, societal and economic issues. Therefore, the EU-funded NANOMED ROUND TABLE project aimed to promote a safe, integrated and responsible approach through the provision of recommendations, formulated by expert stakeholders, for decision making.

This final activity report provides an overview of the five working groups' findings and presents the project background. General recommendations as well as patient views are listed. The document then focuses on ethical and societal aspects and on nanomedicine's economic impact. Regulatory parameters are also highlighted, along with proposals on public communications. The report closes with a summary of the project participants.
