NanoBCA Announces 2015 DC Roundtable – May 19-20th

Posted on February 3rd, 2015 in Uncategorized | No Comments »

Today, the NanoBusiness Commercialization Association (NanoBCA) would like to announce our return to Washington, DC, for our 2015 DC Roundtable May 19-20th. This will be our 15th visit, dating back to 2002, meeting with numerous government officials in regard to the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI).

We will have the opportunity to meet with representatives from the Legislative Branch and from the Executive Branch. We will be meeting with representatives from NNCO, OSTP, NSF and other agencies participating in the funding of the NNI.

Join NanoBCA in Washington, DC, May 19-20th, to learn about the issues at hand and to meet with and be heard by the key policy makers.

NanoBCA Recommends: Nanoinformatics 2015 – Jan 26-28 – Arlington VA

Posted on February 3rd, 2015 in Uncategorized | No Comments »

The NanoBusiness Commercialization Association recommends:

Nanoinformatics 2015: Enabling Successful Discovery and Applications
January 26-28, 2015
Holiday Inn National Airport Hotel in Arlington, VA

The purpose of the Nanoinformatics 2015 Workshop is to bring together stakeholders in order to assess the state of informatics relevant to the all aspects of the nanotechnology enterprise and to set priority targets for the future. From materials to processes to products; accessible data, information, models, and simulations will enable innovators to optimize performance and accelerate the innovation cycle from concept to product. Scientists and engineers will be able to efficiently assess the safety of new nanomaterials and quantitatively implement best practices of safe manufacturing and usage of nanomaterials throughout product lifecycles. Scientists will share predictive models and data that enable the design and discovery of nanomaterials and the resulting performance of systems that use them.

Register for the workshop
Regular attendees: $200
Students: FREE
