Upcoming Meetings and Events


The National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) expedites the discovery, development and deployment of nanoscale science and technology to serve the public good. To fulfill this vision, the NNI coordinates, sponsors and manages meetings and workshops on a wide range of topics from basic research to exploring the potential environmental, health and safety risks of nanotechnology.

Experts from industry, academia, and the Federal Government, as well as the general public, take part in these meetings and workshops to probe the state of the science in nanotechnology research and to identify gaps and emerging trends in nanotechnology-related research.

This list includes both NNI-sponsored and -affiliated workshops, as well as outside nanotechnology-related workshops that may be of interest to the public and to our stakeholders. If you would like your event to be considered for this list, please submit your event here.

NSTA: Annual Conference 2017

National Science Teachers Association annual conference

EMERGE 2017 Workshop - Emerging Technologies, Emerging Risks

The EMERGE workshop fosters a Community of Practice (CoP) equipped with the interdisciplinary and cross-sector expertise needed to keep pace with the unintended risks that may accompany emerging/converging technology development and advanced manufacturing in the 21st century.

TechConnect World: NanoTech 2017

Join us in Washington D.C. as the TechConnect World Innovation Conference co-locates with the largest global innovation program in physical and life sciences. The joint programs include the Nanotech 2017 Conference, the National Innovation Summit and the National SBIR/STTR Conference.

Nanosensor Manufacturing Workshop

This event will identify key elements needed to achieve production-scale manufacturing of nanotechnology-enabled sensors. The workshop will survey the ecosystem for taking a nanosensor from lab to production and will examine manufacturing-adjacent topics, such as data management and product performance.
