Subcommittee of the Committee on Technology, National Science and 
Technology Council (NSTC), will hold a workshop on June 11-12, 2013, to 
obtain input from stakeholders regarding the goals and objectives of an 
updated U.S. National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) Strategic Plan 
that is currently under development and scheduled for completion by 
December 2013. Representatives of the U.S. research community, 
industry, non-governmental organizations, and interested members of the 
general public are invited to offer suggestions to the U.S. Government

will be invited to suggest additions to and provide feedback on wording 
and emphasis areas in the NNI goals, the objectives that support these 
goals, and the Nanotechnology Signature Initiatives. Comments will also 
be solicited on the relationship between these topics and the revised 
Program Component Areas, which will be presented at the event.
