Discover the secrets of the Nanoscale!


NANOYOU (Nano for Youth) is a project funded by the 7th Framework Program of the European Commission that aims to increase young people's basic understanding on nanotechnologies (NT) and to engage them in a dialogue about its ethical, legal and social aspects (ELSA).

NANOYOU aims to reach young people aged 11-25 in schools and science centres around Europe and Israel. As effective programming needs to be tailored to the educational needs and interests of the target population, specialised materials and programs will be provided for subgroups within this youth population.
