Science Outside the Lab

Science Outside the Lab is a workshop in Washington, D.C. that serves as an introduction to how the federal government impacts and is impacted by science and technology. The program explores the relationships among science, innovation, policy, and societal outcomes.


In 2024 the Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure Southwest and the NNCI Coordinating Office will be sponsoring two programs. The first will be a three-day program tailored for university faculty in the sciences and engineering. The second will be a week-long program tailored for PhD students in the sciences and engineering.
