Our Mission

The International Consortium of Nanotechnologies (ICoN), led by the University of Southampton, aims to "build capacity and knowledge in the application of nanotechnologies to support safety of life and property".

Societies and communities around the world face major challenges linked to climate change, population growth, energy security and the availability of food and water. In response, innovative technology, in areas such as smart materials, energy storage and generation and big data, is being developed to ensure the critical infrastructure on which modern society relies is able to satisfy growing demands.

ICoN will develop more than 50 new international nanotechnology experts who will have spent their training considering safety issues and advancing knowledge within a specific field related to the themes, such as smart materials, identified in the Foundation's Foresight Review of Nanotechnology.
