Abstract
The purpose of this study is to provide preliminary base-line data on public perceptions about the risks associated with nanotechnology. We analyzed the current development of nanotechnology in Chile and the risks associated with the incorporation of this new technology over time, considering the particular case of Chile and its position in science and technology. A survey was applied to determine perceptions about the most prominent risks.
