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.

Third Annual Conference on Governance of Emerging Technologies: Law, Policy, and Ethics

The conference will consist of plenary and session presentations with discussions on regulatory, governance, legal, policy, social and ethical aspects of emerging technologies, including nanotechnology.

Electron, Ion, and Photon Beam Technology and Nanofabrication (EIPBN 2015)

EIPBN, the “3-Beams”, Conference, is the premier conference on the science and technology of nanopatterning.

TechConnect Nanotech 2015

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 2015 Conference, the National Innovation Summit and the National SBIR/STTR Conference.

National SBIR/STTR Conference

SBIR/STTR programs are the nation's largest source of early stage / high risk R&D funding for small business. At this conference you’ll learn how to participate and compete for funding in these two programs that encourage small businesses to engage in Federal Research/Research and Development (R/R&D) and to commercialize your technological innovations.

Gordon Research Conference: Environmental Nanotechnology

This 3rd GRC on Environmental Nanotechnology will focus on safe use of these nano-enabled systems, framing discussions around potential "steps" or considerations required.

TAPPI International Conference on Nanotechnology for Renewable Nanomaterials

he Fundamental Research Track will focus on new technical advances in characterization, isolation, functionalities and other properties of renewable and sustainable nanomaterials. The Industry Applications Track will focus on manufacturing applications, new markets, and other end user issues.

QEEN Workshop: Quantifying Exposure to Engineered Nanomaterials (QEEN) from Manufactured Products--Sponsored by CPSC in collaboration with the NNI

A workshop sponsored by the CPSC and co-hosted by the NNI, entitled “Quantifying Exposure to Engineered Nanomaterials from Manufactured Products – Addressing Environmental, Health, and Safety Implications.” This is a technical workshop to determine the state of the science and the tools and methods available to characterize and quantify exposure to engineered nanomaterials from consumer products.

4th International Conference and Exhibition on Materials Science & Engineering

This scientific gathering guarantees that offering the thoughts and ideas will enable and secure you the theme “Highlighting and Focusing on future prospects in Materials Science & Engineering”.

International Symposium on Clusters and Nanomaterials (ISCAN)

The symposium will focus on solar, hydrogen, thermo-electrics, and electrochemical storage for energy applications and bioactive, bio responsive, and biomimetic materials, nano-toxicity, bioengineering and regenerative medicine for life sciences applications.
