The nationwide Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) was once created in 2000 to concentration and coordinate the nanoscience and nanotechnology examine and improvement (R&D) actions being funded by means of a number of federal organisations. the aim of the NNI is to marshal those examine actions which will speed up dependable improvement and deployment of nanotechnology for financial profit and nationwide safety. To take inventory of the development of the NNI, Congress, in P. L. 108-153, the twenty first Century Nanotechnology learn and improvement Act, directed the nationwide examine Council to hold out a overview of this system each 3 years. This record offers the result of the 1st of these reports, which addresses the commercial effect of nanotechnology advancements and offers a benchmark of U.S. R&D efforts relative to these undertaken by means of international opponents. moreover, the document deals an overview of the present prestige of accountable improvement of nanotechnology and reviews at the feasibility of molecular self-assembly.

23 National Science Foundation The NSF’s National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network (NNIN) comprises facilities at 13 partner universities aimed at providing fabrication and characterization facilities, instrumentation, and expertise. These facilities either are subsidized or the full cost is recovered, and they are accessible through merit review. The NNIN was started in 2004, with more than $28 million allocated for the 5-year effort. Copyright © National Academy of Sciences. All rights reserved.

In August 2000, as the NNI got underway, the NSTC established the Nanoscale ­Science, ­Engineering and Technology (NSET) Subcommittee to replace the IWGN. The NSET Sub­ committee was tasked to implement the NNI by coordinating with federal agencies and R&D programs. At the time of this writing the NSET Subcommittee comprises representatives of over 20 federal departments and agencies along with officials from the White House Office of ­Science and Technology Policy and the White House Office of Management and Budget.
