The spectacular progress made by nanosciences and nanotechnologies elicits as much hope as fear. Consequently, a great number of research and training initiatives on the ethical, environmental, economic, legal and social issues regarding nanotechnology development (Ne3LS) are emerging worldwide.

In 2005, a Task Force is mandated by NanoQuébec’s University Liaison Council to conceive a Ne3LS research and training strategy for Québec.

Officially created in 2009, the Knowledge Network is based in Montreal at the CHU Sainte-Justine Research Center, is affiliated with the University of Montreal.

In addition, the granting of training awards on Ne3LS, by Québec’s research funding organizations, allows the network to support and develop expertise in this field.
