Knowledge NBIC Project
Welcome to the Website of the EU-funded research project 'Knowledge Politics and New Converging Technologies; A Social Science Perspective'.
Science fiction is looking less like fiction with new developments in nanotechnology, biotechnology, information technology and coginitve science (NBIC). If the proponents of NBIC 'convergence' are correct, emerging technologies may point to radical transformations in the natural world and in the very meaning of 'humanity'. The prospect arouses both horror and fascination; it calls urgently for clearer analysis of the issues.
