Special NanoBCA Webinar – Weds 11/30 2PM ET

Posted on November 22nd, 2022 | No Comments »

With the midterm elections over and the holiday season upon us, I felt that it was time to take a break from public policy. On this webinar, I would like to share with you an extraordinary true-life journey from Author, Laura Galloway. Laura will be presenting her story on our November webinar Dalvi – Six Years in the Arctic Tundra. Dalvi is the story of Laura’s time in a reindeer-herding village in the Arctic, forging a solitary existence as she struggled to learn the language and make her way in a remote community for which there were no guide books or manuals for how to fit in. Her time in the north opened her to a new world.

I hope you will be able to join us. Here are the webinar access details:

EPA Requests Nominations for Science Advisory Committee on Chemicals

Posted on November 15th, 2022 | No Comments »

The NanoBusiness Commercialization Association (NanoBCA) would like to bring to your attention the following opportunity for the nanotechnology community:

 

 

By Lynn L. Bergeson and Carla N. Hutton

 

 

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced on November 10, 2022, that it is requesting nominations of prospective candidates for membership on the Science Advisory Committee on Chemicals (SACC) established under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). 87 Fed. Reg. 67898. Any interested person or organization may nominate qualified persons to be considered for appointment to the SACC. Individuals may also self-nominate. Nominations are due December 12, 2022.

SACC serves as a scientific peer review mechanism of EPA’s Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention (OCSPP). According to EPA, SACC provides independent scientific advice and recommendations to EPA on the scientific basis for risk assessments, methodologies, and pollution prevention measures and approaches for chemicals regulated under TSCA. Currently, there are 17 SACC members, with eight membership terms that will expire over the next year.

EPA states that its “rigorous scientific peer review processes ensure all Agency decisions are founded on credible science and data. Science provides the foundation for EPA policies, actions and decisions made on behalf of the American people.”

To be considered, all nominations should include the following information:

– Current contact information for the nominee (including the nominee’s name, organization, current business address, e-mail address, and daytime telephone number);

– The nominee’s disciplinary and specific areas of expertise;

– Research activities;

– Recent service on other federal advisory committees and national or international professional organizations; and

– When available, a biographical sketch of the nominee, indicating current position and educational background.

EPA states that it is seeking nominations from individuals who have demonstrated high levels of competence, knowledge, and expertise in scientific and other technical fields relevant to chemical safety and risk assessment. EPA seeks nominees with expertise in a variety of disciplines and focus areas, including human health and ecological risk assessment, biostatistics, epidemiology, pediatrics, physiologically based pharmacokinetics (PBPK), toxicology and pathology (including neurotoxicology, developmental/reproductive toxicology, and carcinogenesis), and chemical exposure pathways to susceptible life stages and subpopulations (women, children, and other potentially exposed subpopulations).

EPA states that nominees should have backgrounds and experiences that would contribute to the diversity of scientific viewpoints on the committee — including professional experiences in government, labor, public health, public interest, animal protection, industry, and other groups — and as the EPA Administrator determines to be advisable (e.g., geographical location; social and cultural backgrounds; and professional affiliations).

NanoBCA Recommends: ABA Environment, Energy, and Resources 30th Fall Conference

Posted on August 23rd, 2022 | No Comments »

The NanoBusiness Commercialization Association (NanoBCA) would like to recommend the following:

American Bar Association’s ABA Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources 30th Fall Conference
September 21-23, 2022
Nashville, TN

The American Bar Association’s (ABA) Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources (SEER) 30th Fall Conference will look at rapidly emerging developments in environmental, energy, and resources law, including the novel approaches taken to bring solutions to climate change, sustainability, clean air, clean water, chemical management, environmental justice, and other transformative issues.

REGISTER NOW

An amazing slate of programming and speakers is planned for Nashville. In addition to being the 30th anniversary of the Fall Conference, this year also coincides with the 50th anniversaries of monumental federal environmental laws that include the Clean Water Act; the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act; the Ocean Dumping Act; the Coastal Zone Management Act; and the Marine Mammal Protection Act. The Conference will reflect on this legacy and other historic environmental laws as it focuses on the future, including emerging topics and trends that are fundamentally changing the course of the legal practice.

Senior Biden administration officials and experienced practitioners will share their insights on a host of thought-provoking issues. The Conference will look at rapidly emerging developments in environmental, energy, and resources law, including the novel approaches taken to bring solutions to climate change, sustainability, clean air, clean water, chemical management, environmental justice, and other transformative issues.

The Conference will also highlight the Section’s focus on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) initiatives. We are mindful that after the Conference location was contracted, Tennessee passed a series of laws that discriminate against the LGBTQ+ community. Nashville officials have opposed those laws and stated that they will not enforce them. We are pleased that the Mayor of Nashville, John Cooper, has agreed to speak to these issues in his conference opening remarks. The Section prides itself on creating a welcoming and inclusive environment at our events and does not tolerate prejudice or discrimination. We are also mindful that Tennessee has recently brought into force laws relating to reproductive choice that many of our members strongly oppose. The position of the American Bar Association can be found here.

Whether you work in the public, private, or nonprofit sectors, this is a conference that you will not want to miss.

National Nanotechnology Initiative Releases Retrospective Video Highlighting Past 20 Years

Posted on August 10th, 2022 | No Comments »

The NanoBusiness Commercialization Association (NanoBCA) would like to recommend the following:

National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) Releases Video Trailer to Highlight Documentary on NNI over the Past 20 Years – Produced by TV Worldwide

NNI Retrospective Video: Creating a National Initiative

Washington, D.C., August 4, 2022 – TV Worldwide, since 1999, a pioneering web-based global TV network, announced that it was releasing a video trailer highlighting a previously released documentary on NNI over the past 20 years, entitled, ‘NNI Retrospective Video: Creating a National Initiative’.

The video and its trailer were produced in cooperation with the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI), the National Science Foundation and the University of North Carolina Greensboro.

The 3-minute video trailer can be viewed by clicking here.

The full video documentary can be viewed by clicking here.

Video Documentary Synopsis

Nanotechnology is a megatrend in science and technology at the beginning of the 21 Century. The National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) has played a key role in advancing the field after it was announced by President Clinton in January 2000. Neil Lane was Presidential Science Advisor. Mike Roco proposed the initiative at the White House in March 1999 on behalf of the Interagency Working Group on Nanotechnology and was named the founding Chair of NSET to implement NNI beginning with Oct. 2000. NSF led the preparation of this initiative together with other agencies including NIH, DoD, DOE, NASA, and EPA. Jim Murday was named the first Director of NNCO to support NSET. The scientific and societal success of NNI has been recognized in the professional communities, National Academies, PCAST, and Congress. Nanoscale science, engineering and technology are strongly connected and collectively called Nanotechnology.

This video documentary was made after the 20th NNI grantees conference at NSF. It is focused on creating and implementing NNI, through video interviews. The interviews focused on three questions: (a) Motivation and how NNI started; (b) The process and reason for the success in creating NNI; (c) Outcomes of NNI after 20 years, and how the initial vision has been realized.

About the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI)

The National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) is a U.S. Government research and development (R&D) initiative. Over thirty Federal departments, independent agencies, and commissions work together toward the shared vision of a future in which the ability to understand and control matter at the nanoscale leads to ongoing revolutions in technology and industry that benefit society. The NNI enhances interagency coordination of nanotechnology R&D, supports a shared infrastructure, enables leveraging of resources while avoiding duplication, and establishes shared goals, priorities, and strategies that complement agency-specific missions and activities.

The NNI participating agencies work together to advance discovery and innovation across the nanotechnology R&D enterprise. The NNI portfolio encompasses efforts along the entire technology development pathway, from early-stage fundamental science through applications-driven activities. Nanoscience and nanotechnology are prevalent across the R&D landscape, with an ever-growing list of applications that includes nanomedicine, nanoelectronics, water treatment, precision agriculture, transportation, and energy generation and storage. The NNI brings together representatives from multiple agencies to leverage knowledge and resources and to collaborate with academia and the private sector, as appropriate, to promote technology transfer and facilitate commercialization. The breadth of NNI-supported infrastructure enables not only the nanotechnology community but also researchers from related disciplines.

In addition to R&D efforts, the NNI is helping to build the nanotechnology workforce of the future, with focused efforts from K–12 through postgraduate research training. The responsible development of nanotechnology has been an integral pillar of the NNI since its inception, and the initiative proactively considers potential implications and technology applications at the same time. Collectively, these activities ensure that the United States remains not only the place where nanoscience discoveries are made, but also where these discoveries are translated and manufactured into products to benefit society.
