Experience taken from our daily work in the laboratory suggests that we have to focus on an
overarching dimension of RRI: Intelligence (which implies education, study, formation,
verification, scepticism, criticism, historical perspective etc.). Responsibility requires complex
thinking, wide angle analysis and forecasting of consequences. This is why the ultimate aim
of this company, of this project, and of all these efforts, is education in all its forms: proper
education is the only way we know to become more intelligent than we are, and is central to
achieving sustainable progress. And we can confirm with optimism that young nanotechnology
scientists are eager to adopt a responsible approach to research and innovation, realize that
technology is never value neutral, and accept their moral responsibilities; they only need the
proper research and innovation environment.
