Upcoming Meetings and Events

The National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) expedites the discovery, development and deployment of nanoscale science and technology to serve the public good. To fulfill this vision, the NNI coordinates, sponsors and manages meetings and workshops on a wide range of topics from basic research to exploring the potential environmental, health and safety risks of nanotechnology.

Experts from industry, academia, and the Federal Government, as well as the general public, take part in these meetings and workshops to probe the state of the science in nanotechnology research and to identify gaps and emerging trends in nanotechnology-related research.

This list includes both NNI-sponsored and -affiliated workshops, as well as outside nanotechnology-related workshops that may be of interest to the public and to our stakeholders. If you would like your event to be considered for this list, please submit your event here.

SUN-SNO-GUIDENANO Sustainable Nanotechnology Conference

The SUN-SNO-GUIDENANO Sustainable Nanotechnology Conference 2015 is a forum for nanotechnology researchers, industry, and regulators to present and discuss research findings on the interface between nanotechnology and sustainability. Our view of sustainability includes not only its environmental dimensions, but also the societal and economic ones.

EU-U.S.: bridging nanoEHS research efforts

The purpose of Joint Workshop between the European Union and the United States is to further promote and deepen the EU-U.S. collaboration on nanosafety research. The aim is also to develop the Communities of Research (CoR) collaboration and to bring them to a new level of activity.

Society for Toxicology 54th Annual Meeting

The SOT Annual Meeting is the largest meeting of its kind. This annual event features a broad range of scientific sessions and a thematic program that provides participants with a unique opportunity to deepen their knowledge in topical areas and interact with leaders in their respective disciplines.

ASME 4th Global Congress on NanoEngineering for Medicine and Biology

The The ASME 2015 4th Global Congress on NanoEngineering for Medicine and Biology, to be held April 19-22, 2015 in Minneapolis, MN, will focus on nanoscale materials, methods, and devices for the study of biology and the treatment of disease.

Third Annual Conference on Governance of Emerging Technologies: Law, Policy, and Ethics

The conference will consist of plenary and session presentations with discussions on regulatory, governance, legal, policy, social and ethical aspects of emerging technologies, including nanotechnology.

TechConnect Nanotech 2015

Join us in Washington D.C. as the TechConnect World Innovation Conference co-locates with the largest global innovation program in physical and life sciences. The joint programs include the Nanotech 2015 Conference, the National Innovation Summit and the National SBIR/STTR Conference.

Gordon Research Conference: Environmental Nanotechnology

This 3rd GRC on Environmental Nanotechnology will focus on safe use of these nano-enabled systems, framing discussions around potential "steps" or considerations required.

International Symposium on Clusters and Nanomaterials (ISCAN)

The symposium will focus on solar, hydrogen, thermo-electrics, and electrochemical storage for energy applications and bioactive, bio responsive, and biomimetic materials, nano-toxicity, bioengineering and regenerative medicine for life sciences applications.
