Summary
The National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) is the U.S. Government's cross-cutting program that coordinates Federal research and development (R & D) activities in nanoscale science, engineering, technology, and related efforts among various participating agencies. The Federal Government launched the NNI in FY 2001 with an initial $500 million budget to accelerate the development of nanotechnology. Over the ensuing 10 years, with cumulative Federal spending of $12 billion, the NNI has played a key role in positioning the United States as the world leader in both nanotechnology R & D and commercialization. The NNI has also catalyzed State activities that leverage Federal investments with a focus on economic growth and job creation. Indeed, nanotechnology appears slated to become an important contributor to the economic growth of the United States over the coming decade and beyond. Today, the NNI is a multi-agency initiative that now includes 25 Federal agencies, 15 of which in FY 2011 will have their own individual budgets for nanotechnology R & D. The NNI is managed within the framework of the National Science and Technology Council (NSTC), the Cabinet-level council by which the President coordinates science and technology policy across the Federal Government. The Nanoscale Science, Engineering, and Technology (NSET) Subcommittee of the NSTC coordinates the planning, budgeting, program implementation, and review of the NNI. The National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO) provides technical and administrative support to the NSET Subcommittee, serves as a central point of contact for Federal nanotechnology R & D activities, and engages in public outreach on behalf of the NNI. The NNCO also serves as a liaison to academia, industry, professional societies, foreign organizations, and others to exchange technical and programmatic information
