Webinar Seeks Suggestions for Improving Nano.gov

Questions and comments can be submitted by email or tweet starting 24 hours before the Sept. 20 webinar.

The National Nanotechnology Coordination Office plans to hold a webinar Sept. 20 to discuss how the National Nanotechnology Initiative's Nano.gov website can be improved. Five webinar panelists and a moderator will be taking questions and discussing comments that are submitted by email  ([email protected]) or Twitter (@NNInanonews) from 24 hours prior to the event until the webinar ends at 1 p.m. A registration link for the webinar is not yet posted, but will be soon, according to the announcement.

Nano.gov. is the primary mechanism for public engagement and was redesigned in April 2011. NNCO says audience/stakeholder participation is vital to the success of this event, which seeks to address these questions:

  • How is Nano.gov useful to you and your stakeholders/colleagues/peers?
  • What do you like on Nano.gov? Which pages are most useful to you? Why?
  • What would you like to see improved? Are there pages you don't understand? Confusing information? Poor layout? Difficult to use?
  • Are there pages that you feel are missing from Nano.gov? What other types of pages would you like to see?
  • What information would you like to find on Nano.gov that isn't currently there?
  • Are there similar websites that present information in a way that you find more useful, exciting, attractive or user-friendly?

The webinar's moderator will be Marlowe Epstein-Newman, communications director at NNCO. She was project manager for its redesign and manages content on the site and NNI's social media. Panelists are:

  • Carl Batt, a Cornell University food science professor with ties to the National Science Foundation as a regularly consulted expert
  • Josh Chamot, public affairs specialist in the National Science Foundation's Office of Legislative and Public Affairs
  • Mary Ann Latko, a managing director at the American Industrial Hygiene Association
  • Nazhin Beiramee, a web designer at OMNI Studios who has worked on Nano.gov and other .gov sites, including those of the Food and Drug Administration, the National Institutes of Health, and the National Cancer Institute
