Student Committee


To provide a forum for students to develop a  global network, connecting students and young professionals to academia and industry, as well as facilitating knowledge exchange, providing useful tools, advice, and encouragement, so that students pursue careers that advance the use of renewable and sustainable nanomaterials.


The Student Committee works to: 

  • Provide an active, global network to connect students and young professionals working in the area of renewable and sustainable nanomaterials;
  • Share knowledge and information to support student success in academia, through both their technical work and as well as preparing for their careers;
  • Support students as they transition to industry professionals by providing knowledge of the industry and career paths, as well as facilitating connections with industry leaders;
  • Offer students a variety of opportunities and activities at the annual TAPPI Nano conference to maximize the value of their participation.
