NSTI — Museum of Science — Banquet and Fund Raiser

Tuesday, May 9th, 2006
Hynes Convention Center
Boston, Massachusetts

Inaugural Event to Honor Top Nanotechnology Achievements and Deliver all Proceeds to the Museum of Science for the Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network.


About the Event

The Nano Science and Technology Institute (NSTI) will launch its first ever national awards banquet with the proceeds of the event benefiting Bostonís Museum of Science. NSTI and the Museum of Science will co-host the banquet at the Nanotech 2006 Conference and Trade Show on the evening of Tuesday, May 9th.

All proceeds from the evening will be donated to the Museum of Science for the Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network (NISE Network), a collaboration of multiple science museums and research institutions to develop and distribute innovative programs to engage Americans in nanoscale science and engineering education, research, and technology.

Bostonís Museum of Science leads an educational initiative focused on nanotechnology that develops innovative approaches to engaging the public in nanoscale science and engineering education, research, and technology. The five-year program is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and is the most aggressive nanotechnology program of its kind.

As part of the fund raising event, the NSTI will present its Nanotechnology Excellence Awards designed to recognize outstanding technology achievements in both the scientific and entrepreneurial realms. The event will also feature guest speaker, Larry Bell, senior vice president for research, development and production at the Museum of Science. Bell will discuss the NISE Networkís nanotechnology education initiatives, which include creating programs and exhibits to keep the public informed of important scientific and technological developments. Bell will also highlight the Museumís significant educational outreach partnerships with the Nanoscale Science and Engineering Centers (NSEC) led by Harvard University and Northeastern University.

About the NSTI Nanotech Excellence Awards

The Nanotech Excellence Awards program was created to recognize outstanding participants in the nanotechnology industry for both scientific and entrepreneurial excellence. Winners of this award will be determined through an expertise peer review process consisting of academia, government, corporate and investment experts in nanotechnology.

The Nanotechnology Awards program consists of two tracks, the first for research papers and the second for IP and early stage companies. For each track awards will be presented for achievements in four distinct categories including electronics and microsystems, life science and medicine, materials and technology, and consumer and energy.
