ICF International Builds Research Framework

ICF International (Nasdaq: ICFI) released its analysis of the U.S. Federal Government's efforts to research the human health and environmental consequences of nanotechnology. The report, titled "Characterizing the Environmental, Health, and Safety Implications of Nanotechnology: Where Should the Federal Government Go From Here?" describes an urgent need to chart a more aggressive course when it comes to answering such questions. Nanotechnology promises profound innovations in fields like medicine, energy, information technology, transportation, and environmental protection, allowing the creation of materials with unique and novel properties. However, questions arise about its implications on the environment and for the health and safety of workers and consumers."
