  2. 2. International Council on Nanotechnology INCLUSIVE GLOBAL All stakeholders communicate and A global perspective on the cooperate in nanotechnology EHS potential risks of nanotechnology TECHNICAL PROACTIVE High quality technical information Stewardship for sustainable and knowledge for all levels nanotechnology Developing and communicating information regarding potential environmental and health risks of nanotechnology to foster risk reduction and maximize societal benefit. 2
  3. 3. Quality Information about Risks & Benefits  [out of five] Best Practices WG Knowledge Base WG “This paper makes a major contribution to the literature …” Database on nanoEHS research Survey of current workplace practices International nanoEHS research needs assessment Wiki on good practices International Council on Nanotechnology Working Groups 3
  4. 4. What is a Wiki? A Wiki is central, shared repository of online information Wikis for Dummies • Anyone can edit the pages • Editing is easy and requires no special tools • Formatting is simple • Changes are easily tracked 4
  5. 5. Why a Wiki for Nano Handling Practices? Guidance Features Research Paper Wiki Entry Document Describes a specific practice No Maybe YES Written by practitioners Maybe Maybe YES Written for practitioners Maybe No YES Short lead time to publication No No YES Engages global community No Maybe YES Provides a forum for dialog No No YES Easily accessed YES No YES Guidance doc = Guidance document usually produced by a government agency, intended to convey principles of safe handling. Publicly available on the Internet.
