National Nanotechnology Initiative: The Initiative and its Implementation Plan, NSTC/NSET Report, July 2000

Subject Area:
NNI Budget
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 Initiative itself is not a funding program; funding is provided through the NNI member agencies. There are various mechanisms for funding research through these agencies. For detailed information on Federal funding programs, see Funding Opportunities. For grant information, see Current Solicitations. See also the list of Federal agency representatives to the NSET Subcommittee, who can help members of the research community find the appropriate mechanisms to apply for competitive funding programs.
