National Nanotechnology Coordinating Office (NNCO) Interagency Research Meeting/Workshop – Nanotechnology and the Environment: Applications and Implications

Location, Time and Dates
Monday, September 15 and Tuesday, September 16, 2003
Place: NSF, Arlington, VA

Sponsors
EPA, USDA, NSF, DOE, DOD, NIH, FDA, DOC, DOT
National Nanotechnology Coordinating Office (NNCO)

Organizers
EPA, USDA, NSF, DOE, DOD, NIH, FDA, DOC, DOT
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
Nanoscale Science, Engineering and Technology (NSET) Subcommittee

Purpose

  1. To bring together environmentally-related nanotechnology research from government agencies with different missions in order to exchange scientific information, and identify areas for cooperation and coordination.
  2. To instill consideration of and for the environment into the research regardless of application.

Participants
Government sponsored researchers – approximately 75 participants

Value
The value will be to determine how environmental applications and implications cross-cut research in nanotech and how agencies and researchers can better cooperate and communicate their research, and coordinate in this area.

Expected Outcome
It is expected that a broader community of researchers will be formed who consider both possible environmental applications for their work and the broader environmental implications of the production and products resulting from nanotechnology. Extended abstracts and a web summary will be published.
