Since 2003 the team of Dr. Antje Grobe belongs to leading international experts in societal aspects of nanotechnologies. 

DIALOG BASIS remains true to its principle of remaining local, yet acting prominently in the ‘nano-community’ on the national and international level. To be precise, in the field of nanotechnologies we 

  • design and moderate local dialogues and events, focusing especially on public participation 
  • plan, accompany and moderate dialogues on the national level, engaging stakeholders from industry, policy makers and public authorities, Civil Society Organisations and from the scientific community 
  • serve as experts for international institutions, including the European Commission in Brussels, the International Risk Governance Council in Geneva and the OECD and the WHO
  • conduct scientific research to questions of risk perception, risk assessment and risk management 
  • serve as keynote and panel speakers and guest lecturers in national and international events and conferences. 

Thomas Epprecht and Antje Grobe are members of the Swiss Federal Council’s expert board on nanotechnologies; Antje Grobe is a member of the advisory board ‘Society and Technology’ of the Association of German Engineers and accompanied the German Federal Government’s NanoCommission from 2006 to 2011 as an scientific expert responsible for the final reports.
