  About the
     Workshop








 
Following the success of the previous Buildings for Advanced Technology Workshops, BAT III was held on February 6-8, 2006 at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana.

Now that a first wave of technical facilities has been designed and many have been constructed, this third BAT workshop focused on the results achieved and the lessons learned. The BAT III workshop, organized in part by the U.S. National Nanotechnology Initiative and Purdue University, brought together building owners, facilities managers and user representatives from a prestigious list of national laboratories, private industry and higher education institutions to share their experience in achieving the needs of these technically demanding facilities.

The proceedings of this workshop will be published through the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office on behalf of the member agencies of the Nanoscale Science, Engineering, and Technology (NSET) Subcommittee, Committee on Technology, National Science and Technology Council.
