AbstractIn the first phase of the research project Nanotechnologies for tomorrow’s society (www.nanosoc.be), the research consortium explored a variety of futuristic visions or techno-scientific imaginaries. This exploration took the form a Policy Delphi, adapted to the particular objective of jointly constructing nano-imaginaries, taking participants ‘personal’ visions of possible future applications and societal issues as a starting point. The participants were nano-researchers, as well as societal experts and primary involved citizens. In this article we describe the theoretical frame which inspired our methodological approach, we present the analytical results we obtained, and we bring some reflections to the fore that arose as a result of the performance and analysis of this Delphi-exercise.
