DEEPEN is a three-year research project funded by the European Commission.
The DEEPEN project is Europe’s leading research partnership for
integrated understanding of the ethical challenges posed by emerging
nanotechnologies in real world circumstances, and their implications
for civil society, for governance, and for scientific practice.
The project is coordinated by the Institute for Hazard and Risk
Research (IHRR) at Durham University. The project team includes
researchers based at Darmstadt University of Technology (Germany), the
Centre for Social Studies at the University of Coimbra (Portugal), and
the University of Twente (Netherlands).
