On Tuesday, June 11, 2013, Dr. Rick Canady, Director, Risk Science Innovation and Application will be co-chairing the White House National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) Stakeholder workshop session on what the federal government research agenda should be for environmental safety and health of nanomaterials. Click here, for more information about NNI and for the workshop agenda.
The goal of this workshop is to obtain input from stakeholders – both those new to nanoscale science, engineering, and technology and those already familiar with these fields and with the NNI – regarding revisions to the NNI Strategic Plan that will be proposed at the workshop.
Participants will be invited to suggest additions to and provide feedback on emphasis areas in the NNI goals, the objectives that support these goals, and the Nanotechnology Signature Initiatives. Comments will also be solicited on the relationship between these topics and the revised Program Component Areas, which will be presented at the event.
Webcast: The plenary sessions of the workshop (Sessions 1, 3, 4, and 6) will be webcast live. To access the webcast and submit questions for the the discussion sessions click here.
