CNS-ASU pursues its goals through two integrated types of research programs:
Real-Time Technology Assessment (RTTA) is a research approach that integrates the links between research innovation and society in mutually beneficial ways. By using RTTA, CNS-ASU is exploring the idea that nanotechnology innovation can be steered toward socially desirable goals by examining itself in real-time. In other words, if nanotechnology researchers are constantly assessing the outcomes of their work, they can make quicker decisions about how that work may be affecting society and can adjust their approach accordingly.
CNS-ASU conducts four different RTTA programs:
The Thematic Research Clusters (TRC) at CNS-ASU look at broad and cross-cutting themes in order to try and place nanotechnology in a broader social context.
CNS-ASU conducts two TRCs:
