NNIN SEI Orientation

NNIN accepts over 2000 new users each year. An introduction to Social and Ethical Issues in Nanotechnology is included as part of the orientation of all on-site NNIN users.  This is accomplished in different ways at different sites.

On-line Training Resources

The Risk Communications group at Cornell has developed a new video training module that can be used as part of new user training at NNIN Sites. Other nanotechnology laboratories or engineering courses are welcome to use it as well.


An older brief SEI introductory video developed several years ago is available here as an archival reference.




The National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network came to the end of its funding period in 2015. Many of the functions of NNIN have been taken over by the new National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure , NNCI,
