Dear All:

Please take a note of the event related to nanotechnology that includes lab safety. Would you please help us to promote this event in your communities?


National Nanotechnology  Initiative Town Hall - What We Know, Where We're Going, and How You Can Engage

Date:                     Sunday, August 19

Time:                     2:30 pm – 3:30 pm

Location:              Boston Convention & Exposition Center – Ballroom West

Join Drs. Paul Weiss, national meeting organizer and Editor-in-Chief of ACS Nano, and Lisa Friedersdorf, Director of the National Nanoscience Coordination Office (NNCO) for the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) Town Hall.  Dr. Friedersdorf will outline the NNCO’s priorities in the coming year. Focus areas include entrepreneurship, advances in water treatment, sensors, and manufacturing, communicating the state of nanoEHS knowledge,  and lab safety. The presentation will be followed by a discussion in which attendees can share their perspectives on these topics and future directions.

The National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) is a cooperative interagency framework for carrying out Federal nanotechnology-related activities. The NNI fosters U.S. leadership and innovation in nanotechnology development and commercialization, leveraging the resources of all participating agencies to advance shared goals, priorities, and strategies.



Thank you very much.
