Image of a meetingThe NNI sponsors a wide range of nanotechnology-related meetings, workshops and symposia to advance knowledge, inform and educate the public, and to assess the progress of research concerning the emerging technology’s potential environmental, health, and safety (EHS) implications.

Both the NNI Strategic Plan and its EHS Strategic Plan call for workshops. Dozens of workshops and symposia related to both areas have been held over the last ten years. There have also been a number of public meetings on EHS and other issues.

This site is devoted to keep you up to date on upcoming meetings and events, as well as links to past events, and includes both NNI-sponsored events and other nanotechnology-related events sponsored by other organizations.
