National Nano Technology Day

National Nano Technology Day

National Nanotechnology Day (NanoDay) is a time to celebrate nanoscale engineering, science, and technology, to recognize researchers advancing the field, to applaud innovators translating outcomes into valuable products and services, and to increase understanding for its potential to positively impact lives. Each year NIMET faculty, staff and students organize a series of stimulating, educational, fun, and social events that take place on NanoDay (October 9th: 10-9). This year NanoDay will be held virtually.

Topics of interest at this meeting include:
