Nanotechnology Fact

The cumulative NNI investment since fiscal year 2001, including the 2017 request, now totals nearly $24 billion. Nanotechnology EHS (nanoEHS) activities have become a hallmark of the NNI, with R&D, policy, and regulation in this area extensively coordinated among Federal agencies. NanoEHS activities, including relevant topics incorporated into the NSIs, account for approximately 10% of the NNI budget request from 2015-2017. Cumulative EHS investments from 2006 through 2015 have now reached more than $1 billion.
