National Nanotechnology Initiative Opens Its Strategy to Public Input

Abstract:
After the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) presented earlier this year its 10-year review of the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI), and then shortly after that the White House sought the public's input on the future strategy for nanotechnology development, it seems that the NNI itself is going to have a go itself at getting the public's input on what it should be doing.

Now that it appears the US nanotech strategy will place an increasing emphasis on developing applications from the basic nanotechnology research that has been funded over the past 10 years, and give more attention to the EHS concerns that may arise from these commercial applications, I think the NNI is more or less on the right track and maybe some helpful input from the public could sand the edges. We'll see.
