NNI Workshop Reports
The National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) hosted the Nanosensor Manufacturing Workshop: Finding Better Paths to Products, in support of the Nanotechnology for Sensors and Sensors for Nanotechnology signature initiative (Sensors NSI), on June 13–14, 2017, in Arlington, Virginia. Participants, including Federal, private, and academic stakeholders, surveyed the ecosystem for taking a nanotechnology-enabled sensor from the research lab to production. Important issues related to manufacturing such as fabrication, testing, and product performance were examined.
This report on Quantifying Exposure to Engineered Nanomaterials (QEEN) from Manufactured Products – Addressing Environmental, Health, and Safety Implications is the result of a technical workshop sponsored by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and co-hosted by the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) on July 7 and 8, 2015, in Arlington, VA.
The workshop report is a summary of the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI)-sponsored event held September 11-12, 2014, entitled “Sensor Fabrication, Integration, and Commercialization Workshop.” The goal of the workshop was to identify and discuss challenges that are faced by the sensor development community during the fabrication, integration, and commercialization of sensors, particularly those employing or addressing issues of nanoscale materials and technologies.
This report on "Stakeholder Perspectives on Perception, Assessment, and Management of the Potential Risks of Nanotechnology" is the result of the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) workshop held on September 10–11, 2013, in Washington, DC.
This report is a summary of the discussions that occurred during the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) technical interchange meeting on “Realizing the Promise of Carbon Nanotubes: Challenges, Opportunities, and the Pathway to Commercialization,” held at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Headquarters on September 15, 2014.
This is the workshop report for the third in an annual series of U.S.–EU nanoEHS workshops. The purpose of this third joint workshop was to further deepen and promote EU-U.S. collaboration on nanotechnology-related environment, health, and safety (nanoEHS) research. Additionally, the aim was to publicize progress toward Community of Research (COR) goals and objectives, clarify and communicate future plans, share best practices, and identify areas of cross-Community collaboration.
