Latest Manufacturing Institutes Compliment Nanoinformatics and Nanomanufacturing Initiatives
Considering the impact to the nanomanufacturing community, both of these topical AMIs compliment initiatives the NNN supports in nanomaterials property database development, nanoinformatics, nanomaterials supply chain analysis, and nanomanufacturing network functionality. These initiatives are further supported through the National Nanotechnology Initiative’s (NNI) Nanotechnology Knowledge Infrastructure Signature Initiative, which supports the concept of materials by design and enhanced modeling capability extending from materials to manufacturing platforms. NKI also backs Sustainable Nanomanufacturing and Nanotechnology for Sensors, which further support materials properties and supply chain database development and utilization tools. Looking ahead, the opportunity to respond to the request for information solicitation from the DOD is available for a short time, after which a request for proposals with additional details and requirements for the AMIs will be posted. The NNN recommends that our members and all nanotechnology stakeholders further review these solicitations and take advantage of this opportunity to seek common areas where the nanomanufacturing enterprise will further benefit from this significant public-private investment.
