Description:

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) requested that NNI agencies provide the NSET Subcommittee with detailed information on EHS research projects funded in FY 2009. These data were used to identify areas of strength or need when formulating the 2011 NNI EHS Research Strategy. Summaries of the data on these EHS projects are presented by core EHS research category in Chapters 2-6 of the NNI EHS Research Strategy, and six examples of research progress are highlighted in this document. A complete listing of the FY 2009 research projects is available here:  (1) totals of individual projects may vary from the summary tables due to rounding and (2) informatics and modeling is a new core area and so was not part of the data call. Please contact Liesl Heeter, NNCO, with questions about the tables.

The reader should note the difference between the scopes of the research included in this OMB-requested project data reported for FY 2009 and that reported for environmental, health, safety, and risk mitigation as a part of Program Component Area 7 in the annual NNI Supplement to the President’s Budget.

Further description of this data call is available in the NNI EHS Research Strategy, p. 7.


Nanotechnology Fact

The National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO) helps to coordinate the U.S. Government’s R&D efforts in nanotechnology, serves as the central point of contact for Federal nanotechnology R&D activities, helps to foster the commercialization of nanotechnology, and provides public outreach on behalf of the National Nanotechnology Initiative. The NNCO also provides technical and administrative support to the Nanoscale Science, Engineering, and Technology (NSET) Subcommittee of the National Science and Technology Council, which coordinates the NNI. For more information, see the NNCO section of this website.
