About the 2002 NSF Nanoscale Science and Engineering (NSE) Conference

This conference brings together grantee teams from the NSF NSE program. The first project grants from this program were awarded in 2001 (NSF 00-119). A second round of project grants were awarded in 2002 (NSF 01-157). Team projects consist of Nanoscale Interdisciplinary Research Teams (NIRTs) and Nanoscale Science and Engineering Centers (NSECs).

The conference is a NSF-sponsored program review and research networking workshop focused on 21st-century nanotechnology. This three-day conference highlights the ongoing research of grantee projects and includes roundtable discussions designed to promote new interactions for research and education among the NSE community. The conference provides an opportunity for timely dissemination of innovative research progress, facilitation of partnerships, and identification of future research directions. These interdisciplinary interactions help to advance the goals of the National Nanotechnology Initiative.
