Past Meetings and Events


NanoBCA & N.C. Dept of Commerce: Nanotech Commercialization Conference

The 4th-Annual NCC features national-level keynote speakers; sessions, workshops, and exhibits showcasing the latest advances in the field; discussions on financing, licensing, and business development geared toward the nanotech entrepreneur; exhibits showcasing cutting-edge research, products, and technologies and networking opportunities.

International Symposium on Assessing the Economic Impact of Nanotechnology

The objective of the symposium is to systematically explore the need for and development of a methodology to assess the economic impact of nanotechnology across whole economies, factoring in many sectors and types of impact, including new and replacement products and materials, markets for raw materials, intermediate and final goods, and employment and other economic impacts.

NanoDays 2012

This community-based event is the largest public outreach effort in nanoscale informal science education and involves more than 200 science museums, research centers, and universities from Puerto Rico to Alaska.

ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit

The event is designed to bring together key players from across the energy ecosystem – researchers, entrepreneurs, investors, corporate execs, & Gov't officials – to share ideas for developing and deploying the next generation of clean energy technologies, and developing energy solutions that will enable America to out-innovate our global competitors.

Nanotechnology Booth at Discover Engineering Family Day

The NNI will host a booth with a variety of hands-on experiments and activities to learn about the ways in which nanotechnology intersects with engineering.

President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) Policy

PCAST is an advisory group of the nation’s leading scientists and engineers who directly advise the President and the Executive Office of the President. PCAST makes policy recommendations in the many areas where understanding of science, technology, and innovation is key to strengthening our economy and forming policy that works for the American people.

NIST & ANSI: International Workshop on Challenges to Increased Use of Documentary Nanotechnology Standards

Effective standardization is critical to the broad commercialization and adoption of nanotechnology. Nanotechnology-related standards development activities are already underway within a number of standards setting organizations, but we believe that there remains significant untapped potential for greater adoption and use of these standards.

NNN's Nanoinformatics 2011

Hosted by the National Nanomanufacturing Network (NNN), Nanoinformatics 2011 will bring together informatics experts, nanotechnology researchers, and other stakeholders and potential contributors to advance Nanoinformatics 2020 Roadmap goals.

2011 NSF Nanoscale Science and Engineering Grantees Conference

The NSF Nanoscale Science and Engineering (NSE) grantees conference highlights the research and education activities of ongoing NSE grant projects. Roundtable discussions promote new interdisciplinary partnerships and identify future directions for research, education, networking, business interactions, environmental health and safety, and societal impact.

NIH & USDA: Using Nanotechnology to Improve Nutrition through Enhanced Bioavailability and Efficacy

The goal of the workshop is to discuss and evaluate the state of the science and to identify knowledge gaps in the use of nutrients (and bioactive food components) for disease prevention and opportunities to improve safe, targeted delivery and controlled release of these components to improve absorption, distribution, metabolism, and elimination through nanotechnologies.
