Description

My PhD research focuses on dynamics and mechanisms in emerging structures that shape how actors cope with nanotechnologies in different sectors of industry. In my empirical studies I analyze how actors take up the application of nanotechnologies for food packaging and drug delivery technologies. In particular I am interested in how actors in these sectors anticipate on societal embedding of nanotechnologies and co-ordinate their activities with other actors.

This PhD project is part of the Technology Assessment Program in NanoNed, a Dutch nanotechnology R&D initiative. For a description of the NanoNed program please visit www.nanoned.nl.
