Summary:
From the URL, I thought I had stumbled on an agricultural icon site, but a glance at the title showed me to be wrong (again!). The “International Council on Nanotechnology” (ICON) is a partnership for nanotechnology stewardship and sustainability with global participants from industry, government, academia, and other organizations. The group (organized at Rice University) has goals of communicating environmental and health risks of nanotechnology with an aim to sound, responsible risk management. If you’re a policy wonk, you’ll probably enjoy wading through the various organizational statements. If you’re not, you can still enjoy the offerings of the site’s newsroom, research paper database, glossary, or links.
