Department of Education (DOEd)

The DOEd faces major challenges in a number of education-related areas, including a need for more graduates and researchers in areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education. By providing working groups, regular NSET Subcommittee meetings, and inter-agency communication channels, the NNI provides a mechanism for DOEd to better collaborate with other relevant agencies, such as the National Science Foundation (NSF), which makes substantial investments in nanotechnology-related education, and the Department of Labor (DOL), which follows trends in workforce needs.
