The EU-funded GoNano project enables co-creation between citizens, researchers, industry, civil society organisations and policy makers across Europe to align future nanotechnologies with societal needs and concerns. GoNano developed pilot projects in the areas of food, health and energy to explore how researchers can work with publics and professional stakeholders to create novel suggestions for future nanotechnology products. The outcomes of the GoNano cocreation process suggest that citizens and civil society can help nanotechnology research and innovation to become more responsive to societal needs and values. Finding suitable engagement initiatives may be difficult for citizens or CSOs who would like to participate in the nanodebate. To help those interested, GoNano did some exploratory research and developed a public engagement database, listing organizations and projects that are currently out there looking for feedback from (among others) societal stakeholders. This participation database is an introduction and gives a brief overview for anyone who has a personal interest in emerging technologies and would like to share their thoughts with researchers and engineers. This may include those who have a personal interest in new technologies and would like to share their thoughts with others; those who are using new technologies and want to participate in their development; and those who want to contribute to a more sustainable future.
