Don't cut funding for the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network!
This petition had 983 supporters
The NNIN is an integrated networked partnership of user facilities, serving the needs of nanoscale science, engineering and technology. This invaluable resource for academic, industrial, and government researchers was funded under a 10-year program which ended on Feb. 28, 2014. While there was an NSF call for proposals for a Next Generation Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network (NG-NNIN), NSF announced on 4 March that it would not be funding either of the NG-NNIN proposals under consideration. If the NSF does not continue to fund the NNIN, it will greatly hurt US competitiveness in nanotechnology.
