Nanotechnology TCC

Coordinating activities of the organization regarding technical matters in nanotechnology

About the Nanotecnology TCC – Solutions for Future
Nano TCC offers the comprehensive capabilities and deep industry knowledge necessary to help solve the most complex issues of nanotechnology. Since opening in 2014, we’re proud to say that each year we have a bigger list of experts and contributors in the continuously expanding field of nanotechnology.
 
We look forward to your experiences and expertise to make difference along with Nano TCC. Contact us today to discuss what we can do for you.

Who We Are – Committed to Excellence 
At Nano TCC, our objectives are to bring societal recognition, understanding and emphasis to address rapidly developing environmental health and safety issues associated with developing and working with materials and technologies at a nanoscale. 
 
Additionally, we strive to promote nanotechnology-related topics among the members of the A&WMA and work towards consistent expansion of nanotechnology-related topics in the programming and events of the A&WMA, including the annual conferences and exhibitions of the A&WMA and to provide leadership. 

The responsibilities of the nanotechnology TCC extend across a wide array of scientific, technical and policy subjects including but not limited to environmental policy and regulation, measurement, health effects, monitoring, management, and safety issues associated with the development and use of nanomaterials, technologies and products.

Any member of A&WMA can be a member of this TCC.  Contact the Chair to see how you can get involved! 

Why A&WMA and Nanomaterials?
Because of the current level of interest in the subject of nanomaterials at the A&WMA Annual Conference, the technical background of our members, and the unique mission of the organization, A&WMA is uniquely positioned as the credible, neutral platform for sharing environmental, health and safety developments in this field.

Nanomaterials Intercommittee Task Force (ITF)
An ITF is formed when many TCCs are working on specific elements of a larger topic to better coordinate and focus the technical agenda. At the Annual Tech Council Meeting in Chicago, Tech Council approved the new Nanomaterials ITF, placing it in the Effects and Exposure Division of the Environmental Management Group. Sometime in the next five years, the ITF could form its own TCC or a Division with several TCCs if there is sufficient interest and focus; alternately, the ITF will be required to sunset. 

Proposed Scope and Objectives of the ITF
As is the case for most ITFs, the expected scope of the Nanomaterials ITF extends across a wide array of scientific, technical and policy subjects including but not limited to measurement, health effects, monitoring, control and safety issues associated with the development and use of nanomaterials. The objectives of the Nanomaterials ITF will likely be:
  • To bring societal recognition, understanding and emphasis to address rapidly developing environmental health and safety issues associated with the development and use of nanomaterials; 
  • To provide coordination and focus among TCCs to address the specific issues posed by the development and use of nanomaterials; and 
  • To provide leadership, a forum and opportunity to the society members, regulatory agencies, industry and the public at large to assess scientific, technical and policy issues relevant to the development and use of nanomaterials.
The Team —Where the Passion Begins
Nano TCC has a team of exceptional and results-driven leaders who love to work with our growing clientele. Our team is eager to learn, open to new ideas and technologies and adaptable to the fast-changing and increasingly complex business environment.
