2023 NNCI Annual Conference Main Page
Main content start


The 2023 NNCI Annual Conference will be held October 25-27, 2023 at Stanford University (nano@stanford), with a virtual option for those who are unable to attend in-person. The conference is limited to NNCI faculty and staff, and invited speakers and guests.  The conference will be a forum for the NNCI sites, the external advisory board (EAB), NSF program officers, NNCO representatives, and invited guests to share updates, new ideas, and best practices as related to enabling nanotechnology research, developing educational practices, and collaborating as a network. Additionally, the conference will be an opportunity for the EAB to evaluate, advise, and guide the NNCI program in achieving the national NNCI objective, which is to provide specialized nanotechnology resources to all researchers who need them.  The insights gained from the conference may help align program goals for years 9 and 10 of the NNCI award and also shape strategic planning for the next iteration of the network.
