ICONS – International Collaboration on Nanotube Safety

Welcome to ICONS

ICONS is a research program funded under the frame of SIINN the ERA-NET on Nanosafety for a Safe Implementation of Innovative Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. The collaborative partnership is composed of interdisciplinary research teams from Belgium, Germany, Romania and the USA. The goal of ICONS is to increase knowledge on the health and safety risks of engineered carbon nanotubes in order to promote the design of safer nanomaterials.
