Griff Kundahl and I will be participating in the 2013 NNI Strategic Planning Stakeholder Workshop.  The NanoBusiness Commercialization Association (NanoBCA) recommends this workshop to our members and the Nanotechnology Community.

DATES: June 11-12, 2013

LOCATION: USDA Patriot Plaza Conference Center, 355 E Street, SW, Washington, DC

SCOPE: The 2013 NNI Stakeholder Workshop will obtain input outside the U.S. Government on the future directions of the NNI. The recommendations of this one-and-a-half day workshop will inform the development of the 2013 NNI Strategic Plan.

OBJECTIVES: The goal of this workshop is to obtain input from stakeholders – both those new to nanoscale science, engineering, and technology and those already familiar with these fields and with the NNI – regarding revisions to the NNI Strategic Plan that will be proposed in advance of the workshop.

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 event.
