National Nanotechnology Initiative Funding Provides Insight into Nanomanufacturing Goals and ...

National Nanomanufacturing Network - March 28, 2014 - 10:08am
Overall funding for the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) as detailed in the supplement to the President's 2015 budget request maintains a roughly flat funding profile with respect to 2013-2014 levels at approximately $1.5 B, significantly lower than the peaks from the 2008-2010 period. The NNN encourages stakeholders to review the NNI FY2015 Budget Supplement (http://www.nano.gov/sites/default/files/pub_resource/nni_fy15_budget_supplement.pdf) report as it provides some key insights into priorities as detailed in the 2014 NNI Strategic Plan (http://eprints.internano.org/1921/), as well as some rebalancing across the NNI priorities in nanotechnology. With NNI goals, objectives and priorities described in detail within these documents, some shift in priority towards nanomanufacturing and commercialization can be observed.
