NNIN is pleased to partner with and support many other national and regional activities in support of nanotechnology and STEM education. This include many NSECs (Nanoscale Science and Engineering Ceners), MRSECs (Materials Research Science and Engineering Centers), ERCs (Engineering Research Senters), and other federally funded research centers. Resources from many of these organizations are linked on the Off-site Resources page.
In addition, NNIN supports and participates in programs with the following major national STEM organizations.
