MANCEF globally supports the creation, exchange, and dissemination of knowledge vital to people, organizations, and governments interested in the commercialization of miniaturization technologies.
A 300-acre greenfield site designed to become the nanoelectronics manufacturing and R&D cluster for the state of New York.
MANA is a collaboration to develop and position the tri-state region (PA, NJ, DE) as a global hub for the expanded research, development, application and commercialization of nanotechnology
This project uses econometric methods to estimate the impact of nanoscale science and technology (nano S&T) research, and associated interdisciplinary research, directly on firms' entry and success and hence on U.S. economic growth, standard of living, and competitiveness.
The intellectual merit of this NSF-funded program is based on the creation of new knowledge in four areas: (a) the synthesis and extension of existing knowledge about ethical issues in nanotechnology research and applications; (b) the synthesis and extension of existing knowledge about environmental, health, safety, and security impacts of nanotechnology; (c) documentation of the levels and changes over time of the geographic distribution within the US and among countries of nanotechnology-related patents; and (d) development and validation of the empirical relevance for policy, research, and public information of NanoIndicators.
The Nanoethics Group is a non-partisan and independent organization that studies the ethical and societal implications of nanotechnology.
The NanoEthicsBank is a database conceived as a resource for researchers, scholars, students, and the general public who are interested in the social and ethical implications of nanotechnology. Items in the database include normative documents, such as guidelines for safety in the workplace, and descriptive materials, such as analysis of the U.S. government's capacity for oversight and studies of the media coverage of nanotechnology.
The precursor to the Nanofactory Collaboration was informally initiated by Robert Freitas and Ralph Merkle in the Fall of 2000 during their time at Zyvex. Their continuing efforts, and those of others, have now grown into direct collaborations among 23 researchers or other participants (including 16 Ph.D's or Ph.D candidates) at 10 institutions in 4 countries (U.S., U.K., Russia, and Belgium), as of 2006.
NISE brings researchers and informal science educators together to inform the public about nanoscience and technology.
NEWT, an interdisciplinary, multi-institution nanosystems-engineering research center (headquartered at Rice University), is applying nanotechnology to develop transformative and off-grid water treatment systems that both protect human lives and support sustainable economic development.
