The National Institute for Nanotechnology is an integrated, multi-disciplinary institution involving researchers in physics, chemistry, engineering, biology, informatics, pharmacy and medicine. Established in 2001, it is operated as a partnership between the National Research Council and the University of Alberta, and is jointly funded by the Government of Canada, the Government of Alberta and the university.
NIH participates in the National Nanotechnology Initiative and this page contains information on (1) currently active NIH and BECON research and training opportunities and (2) listings of funded grants for NIH and BECON program announcements related to nanotechnology and nanoscience.
Nanotec's missions are to establish, support and promote the nanotechnological development of the country through research innovations, technology transfer, human resource development, and infrastructure.
The Carbon Nanoscience Group seeks to understand the chemical, physical, and optoelectronic properties of a variety of nanosystems and nanomaterials. The end goal is to develop and apply design principles to fabricate new molecules and materials for application in several important renewable energy technologies.
NREL's specialists in chemical science and nanoscience are helping to provide the nation with clean sources of energy by studying and developing novel and efficient ways to convert the energy in sunlight into chemical energy (such as hydrogen) and light-generated electricity. Their research focuses on the basic, fundamental science that underpins many aspects of renewable energy.
The AML is designed to be the world's best measurement laboratory. NIST and its partners will be able to produce the measurements and standards needed to move key 21st-century technologies from the research horizon on to the factory floor.
The world's first government-sponsored organization dedicated to developing the biotechnology industry (including bionanotechnology). The center's mission is to provide long-term economic and societal benefits to North Carolina through support of biotechnology research, business and education statewide.
The mission of the Center, housed within the Rensselaer Nanotechnology Center (RNC), is to integrate research, education, and technology dissemination, and serve as a national resource for fundamental knowledge and applications, in directed assembly of nanostructures.
The center's mission is to create high throughput, reliable and versatile nanomanufacturing systems and associated processes through transformative research, education of leaders and global and industrial engagement that will revolutionize future generations of mobile computing and energy devices.
The Nanoscale Science & Devices Group is part of the Bioscience Division at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Understanding the physics and chemistry at the nanoscale is important in designing and developing miniature sensors and devices that exploit nanoscale effects.
ONAP at the Oklahoma Center for the Advancement of Science and Technology is a pilot project designed to assist qualified Oklahoma companies with the process of applying nanotechnology through research, development, and manufacturing to improve current products or processes or create new, cutting-edge products or processes.
The Institut de recherche Robert-Sauvé en santé et en sécurité du travail (IRSST) is a scientific research organization with activities concentrated in seven research fields: accidents, chemical substances and biological agents, musculoskeletal disorders, noise and vibration, protective equipment, occupational rehabilitation, safety of industrial tools, machines and processes. Plans for an integrated nanotechnology research program are underway.
