Reconciling Science, Innovation and Precaution through the Engagement of Stakeholders (RECIPES)
The precautionary principle ensures that the potentially negative effects of new innovations and technological developments are considered without hindering the creation process. On the opposite side there is the principle of innovation which, whenever precautionary measures are considered, also considers potential effects on the obstruction of new developments and thus complements the precautionary principle. The new RECIPES project deals with the legal and political approaches of both principles and involves stakeholders. Eleven European partners are involved in the project; the ITA will carry out the case study on nanotechnology.
