ATIP in Action

Call for Comments on Nano Grand Challenges

On June 17, 2015, the United States National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO) announced that the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) is interested in receiving suggestions for “Nanotechnology-Inspired Grand Challenges for the Next Decade: ambitious but achievable goals that harness nanoscience, nanotechnology, and innovation to solve important national or global problems and have the potential to capture the public’s imagination.”

ATIP has prepared a brief overview of six main Nanotechnology-inspired challenges for the next decade in an A-TIP News article format for our readers' convenience.  The article can be viewed/downloaded by clicking HERE.   We encourage interested parties from all countries to submit relevant comments, which we will forward on to NNCO for their consideration.  Please send your feedback to us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and use the message line "Nano Grand Challenges."

More information on the Request for Information (RFI) and responding directly can be found in NNCO’s press release at the following link: http://www.nano.gov/node/1426
