Cellulose Nanomaterials A Path Towards Commercialization

InterNano - Upcoming Events - May 19, 2014 - 8:44am
May 20, 2014 - The primary goal of the workshop is to identify the critical information gaps and technical barriers in the commercialization of cellulose nanomaterials with expert input from user communities. Speakers will include Deputy Director for Technology and Innovation at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, Tom Kalil, as well as senior officials from USDA. The workshop also supports the announcementlast December by USDA Secretary Thomas Vilsack regarding the formation of P3Nano, a public-private partnership between the USDA Forest Service and the U.S. Endowment for Forestry and Communities to rapidly advance the commercialization of cellulose nanomaterials. Workshop details: When: Tuesday and Wednesday, May 20-21, 2014 Where: USDA Patriot Plaza Conference Center, 355 E Street SW, Washington, DC Cost: Free and open to the public on a first-come, first-served basis.
