Past Meetings and Events


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.

Congressional Nanotechnology Caucus Event: Job Creation in America

The Congressional Nanotechnology Caucus will host an event on Tuesday, November 15, 2011 at 3pm to discuss Job Creation in America. Skip Rung, President and Executive Director of the Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnologies Institute (ONAMI) is scheduled to speak. Please check this page for speaker updates as the date approaches.
