Bill would create nanotech clearinghouse

Abstract:
A Senate bill to reauthorize funding for nanotechnology research would mandate creating a publicly available database of the projects funded in several areas, including environmental, educational and nanomanufacturing.

The National Nanotechnology Initiative Amendments Act of 2008 (S.3274), before the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee, would reauthorize the National Nanotechnology Initiative. The bill seeks to better prioritize research and development activities.

The initiative was established in 2001 to coordinate federal nanotechnology R&D. It serves as a central point for communication, cooperation and collaboration for 13 participating federal agencies.

The bill would establish the National Nanotechnology Advisory Panel a body independent from existing advisory committees, which would be responsible for recommending an appropriate funding level for the environmental, health and safety program areas.
