Description:

This workshop was part of the nanoEHS workshop series. Below are the workshop agenda, materials, and presentations.

Sessions were co-sponsored by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and the Nanoscale Science, Engineering and Technology Subcommittee (NSET).  More than 165 scientists and other stakeholders from government, industry, labor and other segments participated. An additional 25 viewers joined from other locations through the Webcast plenary session. Workshop focused on research needed for characterizing exposures to nanomaterials among workers, other populations, and environments by measuring and modeling exposure levels, and by monitoring indicators of biological responses through the product life of a nanomaterial. The objectives of NIOSH, NSET, and other partners were to review the state-of-the-science, identify critical gaps, and inform further development and adaptation of the interagency research strategy as appropriate.


Nanotechnology Fact

The National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO) helps to coordinate the U.S. Government’s R&D efforts in nanotechnology, serves as the central point of contact for Federal nanotechnology R&D activities, helps to foster the commercialization of nanotechnology, and provides public outreach on behalf of the National Nanotechnology Initiative. The NNCO also provides technical and administrative support to the Nanoscale Science, Engineering, and Technology (NSET) Subcommittee of the National Science and Technology Council, which coordinates the NNI. For more information, see the NNCO section of this website.
