National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network

Serving Nanoscale Science, Engineering & Technology

Welcome to NNIN

Important Notice:

NNCI Announcement September 16.2015: NSF has announced awards to support the formation of the National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure, a network that will build upon the base formed by the former NNIN.   NNCI will consist of 16 primary sites, with a total of 27 institutional partners involved. Eight former NNIN sites are part of the new network. Like NNIN, NNCI will offer open access to advanced nanotechnology resources across a broad range of nanotechnology areas.

NNCI was formed as 16 separate awards.  A competition will be held during 1Q2016 to establish the coordinating office of NNCI. A central web site for NNCI will not be available until then. Details of networked programs such as REU will not be available until later.

More detailed information on NNCI is available here , including links to the NSF press release, individual site press releases, and individual site web sites. 

The   web site of NNCI is located here. Please consult it for more information.

Important Notice:

Funding for NNIN came to end end on Sept 1, 2014 after almost 12 years. Sites will be rapidly winding down their efforts under NNIN.   This web site will no longer be updated. Content will gradually be deleted, become obsolete, or be transferred to the new (pending) NNCI web site. See above for important NSF announcement about the successor nanotechnology network.
