These public meetings address the charge in the 21st Century Nanotechnology Research and Development Act for NNCO to provide “for public input and outreach . . . by the convening of regular and ongoing public discussions”. Workshop and webinar topics may include future directions for the National Nanotechnology Initiative; technical subjects; environmental, health, and safety issues related to nanomaterials (nanoEHS); business case studies; or other areas of potential interest to the nanotechnology community. Areas of focus for the Communities of Interest may include research on nanoEHS; nanotechnology education; nanomedicine; nanomanufacturing; or other areas of potential interest to the nanotechnology community. For example, the longstanding U.S.-EU NanoEHS Communities of Research provide a platform for scientists to develop a shared repertoire of protocols and methods to overcome research gaps and barriers in nanosafety-specific focus areas such as human toxicity or risk assessment. The Communities of Interest are not intended to provide any government agency with advice or recommendations; such action is outside of their purview.
Registration: Due to space limitations, pre-registration for workshops is required. Workshop registration is on a first-come, first-served basis, and will be capped as space limitations dictate. Registration information will be available at https://www.nano.gov/events/meetings-workshops. Registration for the webinars will open approximately two weeks prior to each event and will be capped at 500 participants or as space limitations dictate. Individuals planning to attend a webinar can find registration information at https://www.nano.gov/PublicWebinars. Written notices of participation for workshops, webinars, or Communities of Interest should be sent to by email to email@example.com.
Meeting Accommodations: Individuals requiring special accommodation to access any of these public events should contact firstname.lastname@example.org at least ten business days prior to the meeting so that appropriate arrangements can be made.
