The breadth of NNI stakeholders can be seen from the participants in the Strategic Planning Stakeholder Workshop held July 13-14, 2010. The goal of the NNI-sponsored workshop was “to obtain input from stakeholders, both those new to nanoscale science, engineering, and technology and those already familiar with these fields and with the NNI.…” The diversity of the workshop participants (Table C.1) is indicative of the many actors involved in translating research to technology development and commercial applications and in creating a highly capable workforce, as well as the impact of scientific research on U.S. society at large.

NOTE: This list of workshop participants shows the breadth of NNI stakeholders and not the total number of stakeholders. The workshop listed only the stakeholders attending in person an event that ran at full capacity. Those not able to attend in person, and therefore not on the list, could also access the event via a webcast, and stakeholder input could be provided in writing.
