The Sustainable Nanotechnology Organization (SNO) and the Nanotechnology, Occupational and Environmental Health (NanOEH) Committee have partnered to present the 9th NANO Conference. This conference combines the interests of SNO and NanOEH by offering a virtual program containing sessions that are of interest to both groups.
SNO is a permanent non-profit corporation that provides the infrastructure to carry out its mission of research, education, and responsibility related to both sustainability and nanotechnology. The NanOEH Committee focuses on a conference that serves the occupational and environmental health communities involved with nanotechnology. The 9th NANO Conference provides a synergy between SNO and the Committee to provide high-quality professional presentations of interest to scientists and engineers focusing on the interaction between technical advances and societal, occupational, and environmental impacts as well as sustainability in the field of nanotechnology research.
