May 19th, 2016 to May 20th, 2016



When: Thursday, May 19, 2016 - Friday, May 20, 2016

Where: USDA Conference & Training Center, Patriots Plaza III, 355 E Street, SW, Washington, DC 20024

Scope: The goal of this workshop was to obtain input from stakeholders – both those new to nanoscale science, engineering, and technology and those already familiar with these fields and with the NNI – regarding the vision for the second era of the National Nanotechnology Initiative, known as NNI 2.0. Participants were invited to comment on key aspects of the upcoming 2016 NNI Strategic Plan. Topics covered included future technical directions, implementation mechanisms, education and outreach activities, and approaches for promoting commercialization.
