Lynn L. Bergeson Carla N. Hutton

According to the Summer 2020 edition of the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO) Quarterly Newsletter, the 2020-2021 National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) nanomaterial environmental, health, and safety (nanoEHS) webinars will begin in November 2020.  According to the Newsletter, the Nanotechnology Environmental and Health Implications (NEHI) Working Group is planning nanoEHS webinars to present progress in the following areas:  nanomaterial measurement infrastructure; human exposure assessment; human health; environment; risk assessment and risk management methods; and informatics and modeling.  The Newsletter notes that these are the research areas identified in the NNI Environmental, Health, and Safety Research Strategy (NNI EHS Research Strategy).  The inaugural webinar will provide an overview of the research environment when the NNI EHS Research Strategy was developed, the major questions posed, and how collaborations and networks created a research infrastructure to address these questions.  NNI will post more information at as it becomes available.
