* Nano Day (10-9) - This date pays homage to the nanometer scale, 10-9 meters. The United States National Nanotechnology Initiative began National Nanotechnology Day three years ago. Nano Day is an annual event featuring a series of community-led events and activities on or around October 9th to help raise awareness of nanotechnology, how it is currently used in products that enrich our daily lives, and the challenges and opportunities it holds for the future. https://nano.gov/.

As a member of NSF’s National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure (NNCI), NUANCE is excited to align our annual open house activities to this National day of nanoscale science and technology recognition!
