Abstract

Nanotechnologies and nanobiotechnologies will come to be the key technologies of the 21st century. The possibility to study, understand and control features of materials at the nanoscale promises developments in different areas ranging from material sciences to electronics and communication technologies or life sciences and medicine. If one wants to make good use of nanotechnological research and development one has to create an environment that meets the various ethical, legal and social challenges as well.
