ICON Annual Review 2016
Dr T Prodromakis, A Westley
28/04/2017

ICON's first year has been very exciting and impactful.  We have focussed on setting in motion the recruitment of the Lloyd's Register Foundation Doctoral Students, developing unique programmes that surpass geographical and disciplinary boundaries. 

As ICON grows, we will further develop our social media presence for enhancing the public understanding of risk and the new opportunities that nanotechnology brings for making the world a safer place. 

Five ways nanotechnology is securing your future
Dr T Prodromakis
22/03/2016

The past 70 years have seen the way we live and work transformed by two tiny inventions. The electronic transistor and the microchip are what make all modern electronics possible, and since their development in the 1940s they’ve been getting smaller. Today, one chip can contain as many as 5 billion transistors. If cars had followed the same development pathway, we would now be able to drive them at 300,000mph and they would cost just £3 each.
