Nanotechnologie in der Bevölkerung noch wenig bekannt


  • Bernhard von Rosenbladt
  • Jürgen Schupp
  • Gert G. Wagner


Die "Technikakzeptanz" der Bevölkerung ist seit den 70er Jahren immer wieder Gegenstand von Umfragen. Dabei geht es vor allem um kontrovers diskutierte gesellschaftliche Konsequenzen der Kernenergie, der Informations- und Kommunikationstechniken und der Gentechnik. Heute ist es neben der Biotechnologie zunehmend die Nanotechnologie, die im Hinblick auf ihr wirtschaftliches Zukunftspotential, aber auch ihre möglichen Risiken ins Blickfeld rückt. Nach einer Sondererhebung im Rahmen des Sozio-oekonomischen Panels (SOEP) hat etwa die Hälfte der Befragten von dem Begriff "Nanotechnologie" schon etwas gehört. Insgesamt kann sich allerdings nur ein Fünftel der Befragten etwas Konkretes darunter vorstellen. Nur jeder sechste Befragte gibt an, dass er Produkte der Nanotechnologie kennt.
