This presentation describes semi-structured interactions between social scientists and nanoscale researchers in and around the laboratory that are based on an approach termed midstream modulation. Contrary to initial skepticism on the part of nanoscale scientists, the interactions came to be seen as valuable both from the standpoint of responsible innovation and also in terms of the research process itself.
