Nanomanufacturing Goals for the National Nanotechnology Initiative: Breaking Down the NNI ...

National Nanomanufacturing Network - September 25, 2014 - 11:06am
As we review the various reports that have been made available to the public over the past few years regarding the federal investment in the National Nanotechnology Initiative (http://nano.gov) (NNI), we continue to observe key language that supports the nanomanufacturing community broadly. An example is the Presidents Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST), which in their 2012 Assessment of the NNI (http://eprints.internano.org/1838/) cited the need for increased investment for nanomanufacturing and commercialization related activities. More recently, the 2014 NNI Strategic Plan (http://eprints.internano.org/1921/) provides a roadmap for key steps to support and foster these activities. Excerpts from this report describe the key goals relevant to nanomanufacturing as follows;
