The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) plays a critical role in promoting U.S. innovation and supporting public health, medicine, and industrial competitiveness. NIST programs contribute to practically all aspects of our daily lives, from pharmaceuticals to nuclear security, from baby food safety to natural disaster resilience, and from cybersecurity to manufacturing. However, NIST facilities have been in decline for at least two decades, hindering NIST’s ability to perform essential research.
A new National Academies’ report, Technical Assessment of the Capital Facility Needs of the National Institute of Standards and Technology, assesses the condition of NIST facilities and recommends changes in funding and facilities planning to support NIST’s mission. Join us for a public briefing webinar on Tuesday, February 7, 2023 from 2-3pm ET to learn more about the report. During the webinar, members of the committee will discuss the key findings and recommendations from the report and take questions from the audience.
