Northeastern University’s Center for High-rate Nanomanufacturing to Host 6th New England International Nanomanufacturing Workshop

Boston, MA | Posted on August 12th, 2008

What: The 6th New England International Nanomanufacturing Workshop, "Breaking the Barriers to Nanomanufacturing to Enable the Commercialization of Nanotechnology," will bring together experts from all sides of nanomanufacturing - business, industry and academia - to discuss how they can collaborate to bring nanotechnology from the research laboratory to the manufacturing floor. Some of the topics that will be discussed include:

What are the technical barriers to scale-up of directed assembly and other approaches?
What are the technical barriers to integrating nanoscale elements, structures, etc., with micro- and macro-structures into systems?
What are the currently available risk assessment tools and best environmental, health and safety practices for nanotechnology? Are there regulatory concerns for researchers or manufacturers?

Where: 240 Egan Research Center, Raytheon Amphitheater, Northeastern University, Boston, MA

When: Thursday and Friday, September 11th and 12th, 2008

On Thursday, there will be a session focused on Polymers, and there will also be a poster session, as well as a reception on campus, following the presentations. On Friday, the morning session will focus on environmental health and safety practices for nanotechnology.

About Northeastern University
Founded in 1898, Northeastern University is a private research university located in the heart of Boston. Northeastern is a leader in interdisciplinary research, urban engagement, and the integration of classroom learning with real-world experience. The university's distinctive cooperative education program, where students alternate semesters of full-time study with semesters of paid work in fields relevant to their professional interests and major, is one of the largest and most innovative in the world. The University offers a comprehensive range of undergraduate and graduate programs leading to degrees through the doctorate in six undergraduate colleges, eight graduate schools, and two part-time divisions.

About the NSF Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center for High-rate Nanomanufacturing

In the fall of 2004, the National Science Foundation awarded Northeastern University and its partners, the University of Massachusetts Lowell, the University of New Hampshire, Michigan State University and the Museum of Science, a Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center for high-rate Nanomanufacturing with funding of $12.4 million over five years. The Center for high-rate nanomanufacturing is focused on developing tools and processes that will enable high-rate/high-volume bottom-up, precise, parallel assembly of nanoelements (such as carbon nanotubes, nanoparticles, etc.) and polymer nanostructures. The center nanotemplates are utilized to conduct fast massive directed assembly of nanoscale elements by controlling the forces required to assemble, detach, and transfer nanoelements at high rates and over large areas. The developed nanotemplates and tools will accelerate the creation of highly anticipated commercial products and will enable the creation of an entirely new generation of applications.
