Description:

This document is a supplement to the President’s 2012 Budget Request submitted to Congress in February of 2011. It gives a description of the activities underway in 2010 and 2011 and planned for 2012 by the Federal Government agencies participating in the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI), primarily from a programmatic and budgetary perspective. It is based on the NNI Strategic Plan released in February 2011 and reports actual investments for 2010, estimated investments for 2011 and requested investments for 2012 by program component area (PCA), as called for under the provisions of the 21st Century Nanotechnology Research and Development Act (Public Law 108-153).

Additional information regarding the NNI is available on this site on NNI Budget page.


Nanotechnology Fact

The cumulative NNI investment since fiscal year 2001, including the 2016 request, now totals more than $22 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 over 10% of the NNI budget request in 2016. Cumulative EHS investments from 2006 through 2015 have now reached nearly $1 billion.
