Abstract: The primary challenge to promulgating a more human-centred approach to managing and accounting for innovation is: can we encourage innovation that adds net social value? At the same time, can we deter - or at least not encourage - innovation that serves malicious ends, or that poses grave threats to humanity? Therefore, the aim of this paper is to obtain answers concerning bionanotechnology as a research field, but which are their applications? What sort of ethical and moral dilemmas encompasses? And, does the level of such dilemmas is a sum of biotechnology and nanotechnology, or imposes new challenges?
