Nanotechnology Leaders Converge at National Nanotechnology Innovation Summit

Cambridge, MA | Posted on October 21st, 2010

The National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) will celebrate its tenth anniversary with the National Nanotechnology Innovation Summit, December 8-10 at the Gaylord National Convention Center, National Harbor Maryland. The Summit will feature directors and program managers from the NNI's top federal agencies, along with some of the nation's most influential innovators and corporate integrators, discussing nanotechnology priorities, opportunities and collaborative resources.

"This is a historic event, bringing together the nation's science and technology federal agencies, policy-makers and innovators all under one agenda," says Matthew Laudon, executive director of the Nano Science and Technology Institute (NSTI). "It is a unique gathering of leadership to showcase the last 10 years of nanotech innovation and set the direction for another decade of priorities and opportunities."

A focal part of the Summit is the NNI Nanotechnology Innovation Showcase where 16 US federal agencies will participate at networking booths to showcase their programs. Among others, included in that list are DOE, DOT, NASA, NIH/NCI, NIH/NIBIB, NIST, NSF, USDA, NIFA, FS, USPTO, OSTP, NNCO, NIOSH.

Additionally, the Showcase will feature nanotechnology research centers, commercial success stories, and technologies and applications that will impact or currently impact the market place. Groups including IBM Research; Lockheed Martin; Brewer Science; Agilent Technologies; Veeco; Stanford University; Virginia Tech; University of Massachusetts will be amongst the more than 80 non-agency showcasing organizations also accessible at the event.

Showcase application deadline is Friday, October 22. Evaluation criteria and application guidelines may be found at www.nsti.org/events/NNI/showcase/. Visit the event website for information about participation (www.nsti.org/events/NNI/) or contact event organizers at
