Short Profile Description

The National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) is a U.S. federal research and development (R&D) program established to coordinate multiagency efforts in nanoscale science, engineering, and technology. Of the 23 participating federal agencies, 11 have budgets for nanotechnology R&D. The NNI is managed within the framework of the National Science and Technology Council (NSTC), whose members, appointed by the President, are leaders in industry, academia, and government. The Nanoscale Science, Engineering, and Technology Subcommittee of the NSTC, composed of representatives of the agencies participating in the NNI, coordinates planning, budgeting, program implementation, and review to ensure a balanced and comprehensive initiative.


BILAT-USA (Grant Agreement no: 244434) and Link2US (Grant Agreement no: 244371) Projects are co-funded by the European Union’s Capacities Programme on International Cooperation under the 7th Framework Programme for Research and Technological Cooperation.
