NanoBCA would like to share: What to Expect in Chemicals Policy & Regulation & on Capitol Hill in 2024

Posted on January 31st, 2024 in Uncategorized | No Comments »

The NanoBusiness Commercialization Association (NanoBCA) would like to share the slide deck and video recording of the What to Expect in Chemicals Policy and Regulation and on Capitol Hill in 2024 webinar from January 23, 2024.

Bergeson & Campbell, P.C.’s (B&C®) January 23, 2024, webinar, “What to Expect in Chemicals Policy and Regulation and on Capitol Hill in 2024,” is now available for on-demand viewing. During this one-hour webinar Lynn L. Bergeson, Managing Partner, B&C; James V. Aidala, Senior Government Affairs Consultant, B&C; and Richard E. Engler, Ph.D., Director of Chemistry, B&C participated in a lively, timely, and focused discussion on the state of play and how they expect things will shake out in 2024. This conversation covered expected U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) activities, Pesticide Registration Improvement Acta of 2022 (PRIA 5) implementation, proposed existing chemical rules under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), EPA prioritization of additional substances, and more. Watch now.

This webinar only scratches the surface of what is covered in B&C, The Acta Group (Acta®), and B&C® Consortia Management, L.L.C.’s (BCCM) Forecast for U.S. Federal and International Chemical Regulatory Policy 2024. This carefully curated and detailed document contains 111 pages of our seasoned team’s collective take on what to expect regarding global industrial, agricultural, and biocidal chemical initiatives in the New Year. We hope you find it helpful as you prepare for the year ahead.

Celebrating the 20-Year Anniversary of the Authorization of the National Nanotechnology Initiative | OSTP | The White House

Posted on December 5th, 2023 in Uncategorized | No Comments »

The NanoBusiness Commercialization Association (NanoBCA) celebrates the 20th Anniversary of the NNI!

In celebration of the 20-year anniversary of the 21st Century Nanotechnology Research and Development Act, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) and the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO) are announcing a series of events to drive U.S. leadership in nanotechnology.

For the past two decades, the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) has worked with more than 20 departments and agencies to advance a vision to understand and control matter at the nanoscale, for the benefit of society. Coordination across the government has allowed Americans to safely enjoy the benefits of nanotechnology, which has led to revolutions in technology and industry, including faster microchips, powerful mRNA vaccines, and clean energy technologies. Meanwhile, carbon nanotubes have improved the power and lifecycle of batteries; quantum dots make flat screen TVs more vibrant; and nanoparticles allow for faster medical diagnostics.

“Over the years, the NNI has dynamically and responsibly responded to the needs of the country,” said Dr. Branden Brough, Director of NNCO, which coordinates the NNI. “The initiative is a model for collaborative and thoughtful technology development, while supporting the rapid development of other emerging fields by creating the infrastructure and workforce development programs that bolster these growing industries.”

The NNI community will host a symposium on March 5, 2024 at the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine in Washington, D.C., to recognize the impact of research and development at the nanoscale and plan the NNI’s promising future. The event is open to the public. To learn more and register to attend, visit the symposium’s website.

This week, as we celebrate the Act’s signing, the NNCO will release a series of reports and stories that illustrate the impact of the NNI. This includes readouts from the Nano4EARTH roundtable discussions about applying nanotechnology solutions to address climate change, such as surface technologies, new batteries and energy storage solutions, and greenhouse gas capture approaches. Also, the NNCO will highlight a new independent study about how the U.S. nanotechnology community contributes tens of billions of dollars—and potentially hundreds of billions of dollars—to the economy each year. And, to highlight the importance of this growing field, NNCO will feature the stories of early-career scientists who represent the promising future of nanotechnology.

Additional events will be held during the coming months, including science cafes across the country, activities at local museums, and podcasts and articles in the media. For more information about these activities, visit the NNI website.

We would like to congratulate the Nanotechnology Community on our 20th Anniversary!

Happy Thanksgiving!

NNI Nanoinformatics Conference & US-EU NanoEHS CORs Workshop Nov 15-17 Washington DC

Posted on November 20th, 2023 in Uncategorized | No Comments »

The NanoBusiness Commercialization Association (NanoBCA) would like to recommend the following in-person events:

 

 

NNI Nanoinformatics Conference and US-EU NanoEHS CORs Workshop
In-person – L’Enfant Plaza, SW, Washington, DC

NNI Nanoinformatics Conference November 15, 2023

2023 U.S.-EU NanoEHS Communities of Research Workshop
November 16–17, 2023

The National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO), on behalf of the U.S. Government’s National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI), invites you to participate in the NNI Nanoinformatics Conference and the 11th meeting of the U.S.-EU NanoEHS Communities of Research (CORs).

U.S. and European nanoEHS scientists participating in this transatlantic nanoEHS COR collaboration will come together during the 2023 workshop of the NanoEHS CORs to share highlights of COR activities over the past year and to discuss opportunities and challenges for nanoEHS research in the evolving nanotechnology landscape. Through a mix of plenary and interactive activities, the nanoEHS COR community will continue the work of bridging perspectives and approaches across regions. The 2023 meeting will provide an opportunity for this vibrant nanosafety research community to share perspectives on emerging research trends and discuss strategies to build connections beyond the United States and the European Union. Workshop topics will complement the NNI’s efforts to update its 2011 EHS Research Strategy.

The Nanoinformatics Conference, which will be held on Nov. 15, immediately before the COR Workshop, is being organized in support of the continued growth of the U.S. nanoinformatics research infrastructure and to foster greater interdisciplinary and international connections within the informatics community. The conference will highlight some of the lessons learned, as well as opportunities and challenges for leveraging data across multiple scales and disciplines. The NNI anticipates that the techniques, tools, and approaches to address the complexity of nanoscale data may provide breakthrough perspectives and new collaborations to tackle pressing environmental and societal challenges.
