The Foundation is supporting the International Consortium for Nanotechnology (ICON) led by Southampton University. This programme will provide part funding for 50 PhDs in safety aspects of nanotechnology, addressing the issues outlined in the Foundation’s Foresight review of nanotechnology.
These PhDs can be held anywhere in the world and will form an international cohort of students who will also benefit from annual workshops and meetings. ICON has now opened its first call for proposals for these PhDs with a closing date of 3 February 2016. Please pass on this news to others who may be interested in applying.
