  • EICOON workshop: Nanomaterials for Sustainable Energy

    Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, New Delhi, India
    EU-India Workshop 1-2 November 2010
    EICOON School 3 - 4 November 2010

    This event will provide a unique opportunity for those involved in nanomaterials research (including funding and policy) in Europe and India to identify synergies and mutual needs to push forward progress to address the important issue of sustainability and the advancement in energy technologies, providing benefits for both regions.

  • NanoCode project moves into the consultation phase

    Online survey open to collect perspectives, opinions, wishes and intentions regarding the The European Code of Conduct for Responsible Nanosciences & Nanotechnologies Research (CoC) from all of those with an interest in its development and implementation.

    Further input to the survey is welcome and the online questionnaire for UK-based respondees may be viewed and completed here.

    Those outside the UK who are interested in participating in the survey should contact Richard Moore, Institute of Nanotechnology at for their relevant survey link.

  • ObservatoryNANO

    Briefing No.3 - Nano-Enabled Insulation Materials and Briefing No.2 - Photocatalysts for Water Treatment are now available for download. Briefings will be released monthly and are freely available on the ObservatoryNANO website.

    Initiation of a European nanotechnology company survey, based on patent and publication data in addition to desk analysis and extensive expert engagement, to actively support the European Commission innovation strategies.

    Nanometer business tool available soon. The tool aids companies developing nano-enabled products to address Corporate Social Responsibility issues.

    More Information >>

    Analysis continues within many other aspects of the project including societal issues, regulations & standardisation, and environment, health & safety. All project output can be readily accessed from the ObservatoryNano website.

  • NanoTV

    The NANO-TV project is moving into its final stages with work being completed on the 14 Video News Releases (VNR); these will be available from over the coming months.

    The IoN is also completing work on the Nano Education Tree, to be hosted on the IoN homepage. It will feature details of the many projects interviewed during the NANO-TV project in addition to introductory information on the applications of nanotechnology and issues surrounding its development. The Tree is aimed at the general public and will therefore providing an exciting new educational resource for all visitors to
