Nanotechnology has both applications and implications for the environment. EPA is supporting research in this technology while evaluating its regulatory responsibility to protect the environment and human health. This site highlights EPA's research in nanotechnology and provides useful information on related research at EPA and in other organizations.
Variability-aware software for efficient computing with nanoscale devices. The Variability Expedition envisions a computing world where system components – led by proactive software – routinely monitor, predict and adapt to the variability of manufactured systems. Changing the way software interacts with hardware offers the best hope for perpetuating the fundamental gains in computing performance at lower cost of the past 40 years.
The Virginia Nanotechnology Initiative (VNI) is a statewide consortium of Virginia's universities, federal labs, state agencies, and industrial partners, dedicated to promoting collaborative nanotechnology research, workforce development, technology transfer and commercialization.
The state's nanotechnology leaders, including the Washington Technology Center, Avogadro Partners, LLC, the University of Washington, Washington State University and Battelle's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, with seed funding sponsored by Senator Maria Cantwell, have come together to launch the Washington Nanotechnology Initiative (WNI).
Nanotechnology Sensing Advances in Field and Environment (NanoSAFE) at West Virginia University is West Virginia’s initiative for nanoscale science, engineering and education (NSEE). This effort also includes researchers at Marshall University and West Virginia State University, and those involved with the Research Infrastructure Improvement award 2010-2015 granted to the state: Bionanotechnology for Public Security and Environmental Safety.
