2013 NNI Strategic Planning Stakeholders Workshop

    June 11, 2013
    USDA Patriot Plaza Conference Center
    Washington, DC, USA

On Tuesday, June 11, 2013, Dr. Rick Canady, Director, Risk Science Innovation and Application co-chaired 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. The goal of this workshop was 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 proposed at the workshop. Participants were 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 were also solicited on the relationship between these topics and the revised Program Component Areas, which was presented at the event.
