Responsible Innovation in Nanotech applications for healthcare and wellbeing
What could help research and innovation to improve quality and effectiveness and promote social responsibility of products? How innovation can be aligned with users and societal needs? Which procedures are necessary for a safe use of nanomaterials for nanomedicine, medical devices and cosmetics applications? Industrial experiences in the application of nano-systems for the targeted and controlled release of active ingredients for both healthcare and wellbeing applications, and their approach toward precaution, ethics, stakeholders and users engagement, sustainability in product design and development will be presented. The session will focus on case studies from the Prisma project (piloting RRI in industry: funded by the European Commission under GA Nr. 710059) that will include results of case studies on advanced theranostics systems for cancer therapies and nanocapsules for medical devices.
