NNI Public Webinars


The National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO) will hold webinars periodically to share information with the general public and the nanotechnology research and development community. Topics covered may include announcements of new National Nanotechnology Initiative activities, discussions of technical subjects, introductions to resources available for specific areas such as education or sensors development, or other areas of potential interest to the nanotechnology community.

Some webinars, as indicated above, may include question-and-answer segments in which questions of interest may be submitted to webinar@nnco.nano.gov beginning one week prior to the event through the close of the webinar. During the question-and-answer segment of the webinars, submitted questions will be considered in the order received and may be posted on the NNI website. A moderator will identify relevant questions and pose them to the speaker(s). Due to time constraints, not all questions may be addressed during the webinar. The moderator reserves the right to group similar questions and to skip questions, as appropriate.
