NIST: Advanced Measurement Laboratory ( AML )
The AML’s Nanofabrication Facility, for example, will enable development, prototyping, and evaluation of dimensional references, specialized test structures, and nanotechnology tools and devices basic to efficient processing of real-world products containing essential nanotechnology components. To be operated as a user facility, it will provide NIST’s collaborators with access to expensive nanofabrication tools and specialized expertise in a shared-cost environment.
Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs ( DEFRA )
Our aim is to protect and improve the environment, and to integrate the environment with other policies across Government and in international fora. Effective protection of the environment requires activity on many wide-ranging different fronts – for example, from acting to limit global environmental threats (such as global warming) to safeguarding individuals from the effects of poor air quality or toxic chemicals. It is one of the four objectives of sustainable development. Actions to protect the environment also produce benefits such as housing (through improved energy efficiency of buildings), social progress (through action to combat fuel poverty) and economic growth (through more efficient use of resources, such as re-use, recycling and recovery of waste).
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency : Nanotechnology ( EPA )
EPA has taken a leadership role in planning research directions for the environmental applications and implications of nanotechnology – through its own research programs and participation in the interagency Nanoscale Science, Engineering, and Technology subcommittee of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, National Science and Technology Council.
Nanotechnology at NIOSH
Research focuses NIOSH’s scientific expertise, and its efforts, on answering the questions that are essential to understanding these implications and applications:* How might workers be exposed to nano-sized particles in the manufacturing or industrial use of nanomaterials?
* How do nanoparticles interact with the body’s systems?
* What effects might nanoparticles have on the body’s systems?
Institute of Geological and Nuclear Sciences ( GNS )
Address: Lower Hutt
GNS is a Crown Research Institute (CRI) wholly owned by the New Zealand Government and incorporated on 1 July 1992.GNS’s core purpose is to understand earth systems and technologies and to transform this knowledge into economic and social benefits for New Zealand.
National Institute for Nanotechnology ( NINT )
Our researchers are focused on the revolutionary work being done at the nano-scale, the world of individual atoms or molecules. The main focus of our research is the integration of nano-scale devices and materials into complex nanosystems that are connected to the outside world. The long-term objective is to discover “design rules” for nanotechnology, and develop platforms for building nanosystems and materials that can be constructed and programmed for a particular application.
Nanotechnology Characterization Lab ( NCL )
The NCI believes that the NCL’s activities will markedly speed the development of nanotechnology-based products for cancer patients, reduce the risk of doing so, and encourage private-sector investment in this promising area of technology development. By achieving its goals the NCL will provide a comprehensive set of baseline characterization parameters that will enable cancer biologists, drug and diagnostic developers, and clinical oncologists to apply their tools to solving problems that most affect cancer patients. This work will also lay a scientific foundation that will enable the FDA to make sound decisions concerning the testing and approval of nanoscale cancer diagnostics, imaging agents, and therapeutics.
National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI)
National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO)
Outreach is an important component of the NNI. One mechanism by which outreach is accomplished is through the National Nanotechnology Coordinating Office (NNCO), which serves as the point of contact on federal nanotechnology activities for government organizations, academia, industry, professional societies, foreign organizations, and others. An example of the mechanisms by which the NNCO communicates with interested parties is through its website (www.nano.gov).
National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Begun as a one-room Laboratory of Hygiene in 1887, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) today is one of the world’s foremost medical research centers. An agency of the Department of Health and Human Services, the NIH is the Federal focal point for health research.NIH is the steward of medical and behavioral research for the Nation. Its mission is science in pursuit of fundamental knowledge about the nature and behavior of living systems and the application of that knowledge to extend healthy life and reduce the burdens of illness and disability. The goals of the agency are as follows: 1) foster fundamental creative discoveries, innovative research strategies, and their applications as a basis to advance significantly the Nation’s capacity to protect and improve health; 2) develop, maintain, and renew scientific human and physical resources that will assure the Nation’s capability to prevent disease; 3) expand the knowledge base in medical and associated sciences in order to enhance the Nation’s economic well-being and ensure a continued high return on the public investment in research; and 4) exemplify and promote the highest level of scientific integrity, public accountability, and social responsibility in the conduct of science.
Australian Government: Invest Australia

Ministry of Research : Nanosciences portal
Many important programs concentrate on this rapidly developing sector, and it has considerable financial support in industrialized countries.In France, the Ministry for Research, the CNRS (National Center for Scientific Research) and the CEA (Atomic Energy Center) have backed many activities promoting the nanosciences and nanotechnologies.
National Institute of standards and Technology (Nist): Nanotechnology
NIST, an agency of the Commerce Department’s Technology Administration, was founded in 1901 as the nation’s first federal physical science research laboratory. Over the years, the scientists and technical staff at NIST have made solid contributions to image processing, DNA diagnostic “chips,” smoke detectors, and automated error-correcting software for machine tools. Just a few of the other areas in which NIST has had major impact include atomic clocks, X-ray standards for mammography, scanning tunneling microscopy, pollution-control technology, and high-speed dental drills. We invite you to explore our web site to learn about our current projects, to find out how you can work with us, or to make use of our products and services.
Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies (CINT)
CINT is one of five NSRCs throughout the U.S. that form an integrated national program, affiliated with major facilities at the DOEs National Laboratories, to cover the diverse aspects of nanoscience and technology. This complex aspires to become a cornerstone of the nation’s nanotechnology revolution, contributing to DOEs principal missions in national defense, energy, and the environment while providing an invaluable resource for universities and industries.
President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology ( PCAST )

Since its creation PCAST has been expanded and currently consists of 23 members plus the Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy who serves as the Council’s Co-Chair. The council members, distinguished individuals appointed by the President, are drawn from industry, education, and research institutions, and other nongovernmental organizations.
NCI Alliance for Nanotechnology
The NCI Alliance for Nanotechnology in Cancer is a comprehensive, systematized initiative encompassing the public and private sectors, designed to accelerate the application of the best capabilities of nanotechnology to cancer.Currently, scientists are limited in their ability to turn promising molecular discoveries into benefits for cancer patients. Nanotechnology can provide the technical power and tools that will enable those developing new diagnostics, therapeutics, and preventives to keep pace with todays explosion in knowledge.
