Welcome to the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) website. The NNI serves as the central point of communication, cooperation, and collaboration for all Federal agencies engaged in nanotechnology research, bringing together the expertise needed to advance this broad and complex field.
The Initiative has had strong, bipartisan support from the Executive and Legislative branches of Government since its creation in 2000. The NNI involves the nanotechnology-related activities of 27 Federal agencies, 15 of which have specific budgets for nanotechnology R&D. The agencies involved allocate expenditures from their core budgets, demonstrating nanotechnology’s importance to their mission.
The National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) is a multi-agency U.S. Government program that coordinates Federal efforts in nanotechnology.
The NSET Subcommittee is the interagency body responsible for coordination of the National Nanotechnology Initiative.
Details on the agencies participating in the NSET Subcommittee.
The NSET Subcommittee created four Working Groups to enhance coordination and collaboration among NNI agencies.
The NNCO provides staff support to the Nanoscale Science, Engineering, and Technology (NSET) Subcommittee.
