Nanotechnology is changing the world and the way we live, creating scientific advances and new products that are smaller, faster, stronger, safer, and more reliable. After about 20 years of steady progress in nanotechnology research and development, scientists in the United States and around the world have a much clearer picture of how to create nanoscale materials with properties never before envisioned. Scientists and engineers are exploring exciting new discoveries at the nanoscale every day.
Nanotechnology research will have a significant, positive impact on our world.
The NNI and its member agencies are committed to the responsible development of nanotechnology.
The potential societal, ethical, and legal implications of nanotechnology are an important NNI issue.
Congress and the Executive Branch fund nanotechnology R&D and establish policies and regulations that affect nano-enabled products and materials.
Examples of multi- and bi-lateral cooperation between the U.S. and foreign governments.
Globally accepted nanotechnology standards are vital to continuing progress in research and development and eventual commercialization.
