NNCI Events

This listing includes information on events (seminars, workshops, symposia, and other activities) within the NNCI which are open to the entire research community. The list is maintained by the NNCI Coordinating Office to encourage collaboration among the sites and promotion of these events which provide training and education of staff, students, and research users. In addition, the Staff Exchange Program is a mechanism for travel support specifically to allow NNCI staff to attend events at other sites.
