NNCO Announces Workshops and Webinar in Support of the NNI

The National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO) published a Federal Register notice on March 14, 2016, announcing the following events in support of the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI):

- The "2016 NNI Strategic Planning Stakeholder Workshop," which will be held May 19-20, 2016. See http://www.nano.gov/node/1574 NNCO expects to obtain input from individual stakeholders that it may use to inform the development of the NNI Strategic Plan. Representatives of the U.S. research community, industry, non-governmental organizations (NGO), and interested members of the general public are invited to comment on key aspects related to the 2016 NNI Strategic Plan, currently under development by the NNI agencies. Topics covered may include future technical directions; implementation mechanisms; education and outreach activities; and approaches for promoting commercialization. Registration will open April 4, 2016.

- The "2016 U.S.-EU: Bridging NanoEHS Research Efforts Joint Workshop," which will be held June 6-7, 2016. See http://us-eu.org/Calendar/2016-u-s-eu-bridging-nanoehs-research-efforts-joint-workshop/ NNCO will hold the workshop in collaboration with the European Commission (EC). The workshop will bring together the U.S.-European Union (EU) Communities of Research (COR), which serve as a platform for scientists to develop a shared repertoire of protocols and methods to overcome research gaps and barriers, and to address environmental, health, and safety questions about nanomaterials. The goal of the workshop is to publicize progress towards COR goals and objectives, clarify and communicate future plans, share best practices, and identify areas for cross-COR collaboration. Registration will open April 6, 2016.

- The NNCO will hold one or more webinars between the publication of the March 14, 2016, Federal Register notice and December 31, 2016. See http://www.nano.gov/PublicWebinars The first webinar will be held on or after April 20, 2016. Topics covered may include stakeholder input for strategic planning; technical subjects; environmental, health, and safety issues; business case studies; or other areas of potential interest to the nanotechnology community.
