If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr Xavier Moya.

The aim of this talk is to look at Nanoscience and Nanotechnology in a wider context. Is there a real novelty behind these fashionable names, or is it just a new slogan to attract research funding? What kind of challenges do scientists working in this area face? What implications for society might it have? Is it safe? Is it crucial for future applications, or will it fade and disappear in a few years’ time? Where is the Nano science/fiction border today? By answering these questions from my perspective I am hoping to spark an interesting, open-ended discussion with the audience.

This talk is part of the Wolfson College Science Society talks series.
