Call for Student Leaders

TechConnect, in partnership with the NextTech Student Network and affiliated student groups from across the country, is proud to announce the 2023 Nano and Emerging Technologies Student Leaders Conference co-located with the 2023 TechConnect World Innovation Conference and 2023 Nanotech Conference & Expo, Gaylord National Hotel & Convention Center, National Harbor, MD, June 19-21, 2023.

The Student Leaders Conference brings together undergraduate nano and emerging technologies student group representatives from across the United States. This program is seeking out active student group leaders in order to highlight undergraduate research and connect students with entrepreneurs, industry leaders, venture capitalists, and representatives of federal agencies funding research in emerging technologies. Additionally, the Student Leaders Conference is an opportunity for students to share best practices and network with like-minded group leaders.

This year’s program includes a career panel discussion with industry, government, and academics to explore the different career paths possible with a STEM degree, a hands-on session where students have the opportunity to learn a new skill such as data science or FAIR data principles, a Nano4EARTH event where students will have the chance to discuss their climate solutions with community leaders, and a poster session and reception.

In its role to support the National Nanotechnology Initiative, the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office is helping to establish the NextTech Student Network. Student leaders from the network have designed the conference in order to ensure the programming meets the needs of these groups. Participation is welcome from student leaders in any science, technology, and business domain.
