Home > Press > The Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnologies Institute (ONAMI) and The Safer Nanomaterials and Nanomanufactureing Initiative (SNNI) announce Greener Nano 2011 (GN11) Conference & GN101 Workshop, May 1-3, HP, Cupertino, CA.

Abstract:
GN101: What do policymakers and regulators need to know to advance greener nanotechnology?
Sunday, May 1st, from 1-5PM at Hotel Valencia Santana Row, 355 Santana Row, San Jose, CA

This workshop is designed for policymakers, industry, students, researchers, or those new to the field and interested in learning how the principles of greener nanotechnology can be applied to provide opportunities for innovation.

The Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnologies Institute (ONAMI) and The Safer Nanomaterials and Nanomanufactureing Initiative (SNNI) announce Greener Nano 2011 (GN11) Conference & GN101 Workshop, May 1-3, HP, Cupertino, CA.

After the workshop, the Greener Nano Conference (GN11) will open with a dinner reception. Our opening plenary speaker will be Dr. Stanley Williams, Senior Fellow at Hewlett-Packard Laboratories and founding Director of the HP Quantum Science Research group. He will discuss future expectations of nanotechnology and sustainable development in the next decade.

SNNI's 6th annual Greener Nano Conference, GN11 will be hosted by HP in Cupertino, CA on May 1-3, 2011.

"NanoEHS" and "green chemistry" have become staples inpnearly every undertaking or conversation involving nanotechnology. Is this change in mindset helping the community make progress in designing greener materials and processes, and supporting effective policy? Is the promise of nanomaterials innovation for energy, security, medicine, and for resource conservation and environmental protection being advanced or slowed down by all of this attention? It appears that, although many have embraced the principles of green chemistry and recognize the need for sound science to inform policy, reducing these principles to practice remains a barrier for most commercial endeavors.

GN11 will address challenges and opportunities for nanotechnology and delineate how companies can incorporate green nanotechnology into its products and processes. We will focus on two key research areas where reduction to practice has the most potential to significantly advance the field. We will highlight state-of-the-art in materials synthesis and characterization challenges, and discuss biological impacts of nanotechnology. We will kick off each session with overview/keynote talks followed by a session of "rapid fire" talks that delve into the technical aspects of the subjects.

We will wrap up with a panel session focused on advancing greener industrial applications of nanotechnology. This panel session will consist of a series of presentations and in-depth discussions.
