NanoBCA Recommends: Nanotechnology Technician Workforce Training Survey

Posted on March 20th, 2017 | No Comments »

NanoBCA requests your participation with the following survey:

Is there a need for a Philadelphia/Mid-Atlantic-based program? What would this training program look like to best serve your industry’s needs?

 

The Singh Center for Nanotechnology at the University of Pennsylvania and the Community College of Philadelphia would like to start a workforce training program to provide training and education in nanotechnology processes. We are determining the need for technicians with skills and knowledge in nanotechnology-related processes in industries in the Mid-Atlantic region.

Would a 1-year proficiency certificate or a 2-year Associate’s degree training program help provide a workforce that would meet your technical staffing needs?  Your expert opinion will help shape whether this program goes forward and if so, what the program looks like. All responses collected from this survey will be aggregated anonymously and not published. If you would like to include contact information for future purposes, there is a section for that at the end of the survey.

If you have any questions or prefer to talk about your nanotechnology workforce needs over the phone, rather than complete this survey, please call Linda Gerz at the number listed below. We are not trying to sell or commit you to anything. We simply would like your realistic input as to whether a program like this would be valuable for the region.

We thank you for answering this short survey.

Survey Link: https://goo.gl/forms/iODRJaAAa68FWPJt2

Sincerely,

Linda Gerz, Assistant Professor of Chemistry (lgerz@ccp.edu, 215-751-8623)
and
Randy Libros, Professor of Physics, at the Community College of Philadelphia

and

Kristin Field, Education Programs

Water 2.0 Recommends: Unlock the Value of AMI Investments 2/28 11AM PT/2PM ET

Posted on March 20th, 2017 | No Comments »

Water 2.0 would like to recommend:

Waterside Chats – Hosted by WaterSmart Software
Unlock the Value of AMI Investments
Tuesday, February 28, 2017
11AM PT / 2PM ET

Transitioning to Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) is complex, time consuming, and expensive. Utility managers are challenged to integrate AMI with various other utility systems while also creating flexibility for future improvements. Also, utilities often fail to leverage the plethora of AMI data to improve operational efficiency.

This WaterSide Chat brings together two experts that will discuss how to overcome challenges associated with upgrading a metering system to AMI. Joe Ball is the Director of Solutions Marketing at Itron, Inc. Joe brings decades of experience helping utility managers optimize their existing metering systems. Spencer Cashwell is a Program Technician at the City of Bend, Oregon who brings 20 years of experience implementing, deploying and managing water metering systems. He’s been instrumental to the City of Bend’s multi-year transition to AMI.

We hope you can join the conversation on Tuesday, February 28th.

NanoBCA Recommends NNCO Webinars – Weds 1/18 and Weds 1/25

Posted on January 19th, 2017 | No Comments »

The NanoBusiness Commercialization Association (NanoBCA) would like to recommend the following NNCO webinars.

Water Sustainability through Nanotechnology: Enabling Next-Generation Water Monitoring Systems
Date:  Wednesday, January 18, 2017
Time:  3PM – 4PM ET

REGISTER HERE

River-valley

 

 

 

 

 
The development of next-generation water monitoring systems is an essential element of ensuring a safe and abundant water supply. Yet, currently less than 30% of the Nation’s surface water bodies are assessed by EPA, states, or tribes, partly because of the high cost of traditional fixed-station water quality monitoring.

In this webinar, panelists will discuss the current state of and future opportunities related to water monitoring. Justin Mattingly (Water Environment & Reuse Foundation) will describe water monitoring needs related to reuse, and this broad overview will be followed by two specific use cases: Nick Dokoozlian (E&J Gallo Winery) will describe his work with distributed sensors for improved grape yield and water use efficiency, and Daniel Barta (NASA) will speak in technical detail about the water monitoring needs aboard spacecraft.

NanoEHS Webinar Series:
The Utility of Alternative Testing Strategies in Nanotechnology Health and Safety Evaluations
Featuring CEIN’s Dr. Andre Nel
Date:  Wednesday, January 25, 2017
Time:  2PM – 3PM ET

REGISTER HERE

woman-in-lab

 

 

 

 

 

 

Research over the past 15 years has led to significant progress in understanding the potential environmental, health, and safety (EHS) implications of nanomaterials, generating an impressive body of literature and test data. However, keeping pace with the rapid development and diversity of engineered nanomaterials (ENMs) and nanotechnology-enabled products will require considerable advances in risk assessment methodologies.

Many factors impact future directions: enhanced ability to rapidly screen large numbers of chemical substances, reducing the use of animals in toxicity testing, and inventing new approaches and tools that improve our understanding of the mechanisms underlying adverse responses. These factors have been key drivers in creating a paradigm shift from conventional descriptive approaches for chemical hazard assessment. Twenty-first century risk assessment is moving toward methods based on an understanding of cellular response pathways that, when triggered by a chemical substance, could initiate key biological events that lead to adverse outcomes at the individual or population level. This new paradigm, relying on non-vertebrate, alternative testing strategies (ATS), utilizes mechanism-based in vitro assays and in silico predictive tools for expedited screening of the hazard potential of chemical substances and ENMs at significantly less cost.

The National Nanotechnology Initiative is pleased to announce the next event in the NEHI Working Group’s EHS Webinar Series, and welcomes Dr. Andre Nel, Distinguished Professor of Medicine and Director of the NSF- and EPA-funded Center for Environmental Implications of Nanotechnology. Dr. Nel will describe the recent scientific advancements in developing alternative testing strategies. Dr. Nel, an internationally recognized leader and innovator in nanomedicine, will demonstrate, by way of a few key examples (such as carbon nanotubes), the utility of ATS for mechanism-based high-throughput and high-content screening. This mechanism-based approach relies on adverse outcome pathways for ranking and profiling ENMs. Dr. Nel’s presentation will describe how the connection between a molecular initiating event, tied to ENMs’ physicochemical properties, and key intermediary responses can be linked to apical health outcomes. Dr. Nel will also address how data can be used for dose- and exposure-relevant tiered risk assessment, as well as data acquisition and submission for regulatory consideration.

Q&A:

Webinar viewers will be able to submit questions for the speaker to answer during the Q&A period. Submitted questions will be considered in the order received and may be posted on the NNI website. A moderator will identify relevant questions and pose them to the speakers. Due to time constraints, some questions may be grouped and some may not be addressed during the webinar.
