Registration Open: Nanosensor Manufacturing Workshop


(May 1, 2017) Registration for the NNI workshop, "Nanosensor Manufacturing: Finding Better Paths to Products," is now open at www.nano.gov/NanosensorManufacturing. This event will be held at the National Science Foundation in Arlington, Virginia, on June 13-14, 2017.

The Nanosensor Manufacturing Workshop supports the goals of the Nanotechnology for Sensors and Sensors for Nanotechnology Signature Initiative (NSI). This event will identify key research elements needed to achieve production-scale manufacturing of nanotechnology-enabled sensors. Through plenary presentations and panels, the first day of the workshop will survey the ecosystem for taking a nanosensor from the research lab to production and examine important issues related to manufacturing, such as fabrication, testing, and product performance. The second day of the workshop will include an interactive “scrimmage,” in which participants will walk through a hypothetical scenario, such as engaging a contract manufacturer to produce a sensor. Participants are invited from a wide range of sectors and application areas. Space is limited and registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. The event will be webcast for those who are unable to attend in person. The workshop will culminate in a publicly available report and may inform future research priorities for achieving scalable manufacturing and commercialization of nanosensors.
