The American National Standards Institute Nanotechnology Standards Panel (ANSI-NSP) invites interested stakeholders to participate in its virtual workshop on advanced materials on August 19-20, 2020. Online registration is now open.
Advanced materials are of growing interest as there is increasing recognition that size alone does not define the unique properties of a material. More and more, governments and organizations that originally focused on nanomaterials are now also focusing on advanced materials and emerging technologies.
The workshop discussions will focus on whether existing nanotechnology standards bodies should address advanced materials and how the gaps and needs relative to advanced materials standards can best be identified and prioritized.
Panelists will represent the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office, the United States Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, The Chemours Company, Society of Toxicology, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, among others.
The workshop will take place on August 19-20, 2020, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. ET on both days.
Relevant stakeholders include industry, government representatives, representatives from non-governmental organizations, and academics engaged in this subject area, among others.
