The National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) envisions a future in which the ability to control matter at the nanoscale leads to a revolution in industry that benefits society. Since 2000, Federal agencies participating in the NNI have invested over 20,000,000,000 dollars in various aspects of nanotechnology.

Nanotechnology is enabling revolutionary innovations for the future of electronics, computation, communications, and sensing. New nanoparticle-based composites and additives offer dramatic improvements in properties such as strength-to-weight ratios, manufacturing complexity, lubrication, and catalytic efficiency. Also, advances in nanoparticle-based, targeted therapies help to treat diseases like cancer.

But much remains to be done when it comes to transitioning advances in R&D to commercial applications. June 2 is your opportunity to share insights into industry’s future prospects in order to refine the upcoming NNI 2.0 plan.
