The NanoBusiness Commercialization Association (NanoBCA) would like to recommend the following NNI Roundtable Discussion.

Nano4EARTH Roundtable Discussion on Coatings, Lubricants, Membranes, and Other Interface Technologies
Thursday, July 6, 2023

Online and the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office:
470 L’Enfant Plaza SW
Suite 8001
Washington, DC 20024

The Nano4EARTH roundtable discussion on nanotechnology-enabled coatings, lubricants, membranes, and other interface technologies aims to identify fundamental knowledge gaps, needs, and opportunities at the interface of materials, technologies, and industrial processes. These needs could have a near-term impact on energy efficiency, sustainable development, and climate change. The moderated discussion will tackle all aspects of the topic – ranging from exciting R&D opportunities to commercialization challenges – by featuring a small group of experts from different sectors and backgrounds.

This roundtable is a critical part of the Nano4EARTH National Nanotechnology Challenge, which aims to leverage recent investments in understanding and controlling matter at the nanoscale to develop technologies and industries that address climate change. Nano4EARTH focuses on facilitating opportunities for members of the nanotechnology community to convene, collaborate, and share resources. Nano4EARTH also strives to provide mechanisms that support technology development and commercialization of nanotechnology-enabled climate solutions.

The topic of this roundtable was identified at the Nano4EARTH kick-off workshop (summary readout and video archive) as a particularly promising area that could have an impact in a short time frame (four years or less). This roundtable is the first of four. 



Directions are available here. 

In addition to recommending events that are relevant to our nanotechnology community, NanoBCA offers our members the opportunity to participate in our monthly webinars. Our monthly webinars address topics involving the relationship between the science of nanotechnology and Environmental, Health & Safety (EHS), US Legislation, Education, Finance, Manufacturing and Foreign Policy.



One of the benefits of NanoBCA membership is access to our previous webinars with America’s leading scientists and engineers.

We look forward to continuing our legacy relationships and welcoming a new generation of NanoBCA members.

Once again, we highly recommend participating in the Nano4EARTH Roundtable Discussion on July 6th.
