NNI Strategic Documents
Author: National Science and Technology Council Committee on Technology; Subcommittee on Nanoscale Science, Engineering and Technology
Publication Date: Jul. 11 2000

Description:

The NSET Subcommittee succeeded the Interagency Working Group on Nanoscience, Engineering, and Technology (IWGN) as the primary interagency coordination mechanism on nanotechnology. The NNI Implementation Plan looks at ways nanotechnology thrives from modern advances in chemistry, physics, biology, engineering, medical, and materials research and how it would contribute to cross-disciplinary training of the 21st century science and technology workforce. Reflects the FY 2001 budget for relevant programs which then was being increased to $495 million.


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.
