The International Council on Nanotechnology (ICON) is the only global organization aimed at providing interactions among a broad set of global stakeholders to create a sustainable nanotechnology industry. ICON activities ensure effective nanotechnology stewardship through risk assessment, research and communication. ICON strives to provide a wide range of synergistic projects that serve the interests of all stakeholders. ICON Program - benefits of ICON membership include participation in the governance of the organization, informational advising on issues of nanotechnology regulation and risk assessment, and access to a worldwide network of nanotechnology stakeholders within ICON who are committed to ensuring the responsible development of the industry. Most critically, ICON membership funds are directed only toward approved ICON activities and are the only sources of support for many of the policy activities most desperately needed by the industry. The International Council on Nanotechnology (ICON) hopes you find the information presented on these ICON pages useful.
