NNCO Will Hold Public Workshop Regarding Updating the NNI Strategic Plan

Lynn L. Bergeson

The National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO) will hold a workshop on June 11-12, 2013, to obtain input from stakeholders regarding the goals and objectives of an updated National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) Strategic Plan, which is currently under development and scheduled for completion by December 2013. Participants will be invited to suggest additions to and provide feedback on wording and emphasis areas in the NNI goals, the objectives that support these goals, and the Nanotechnology Signature Initiatives. Comments will also be solicited on the relationship between these topics and the revised Program Component Areas, which will be presented at the workshop.  NNCO invites representatives of the U.S. research community, industry, non-governmental organizations, and interested members of the general public to offer suggestions to the U.S. government interagency group that is drafting the new plan, which is an update of the 2011 NNI Strategic Plan.  The workshop will be webcast.
