Remember Slinky, the coiled metal spring that walks down stairs with just a push, momentum and gravity? Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have developed their own version of this classic albeit 10 million times smaller as a novel technology for manipulating and measuring DNA molecules and other nanoscale (billionth of a meter) materials.
Current Solicitations – Federal Grants
Here [http://www.nano.gov/grants] you can find a list of current grant solicitations in the area of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Additionally, some Federal agencies have specific web pages for nanotechnology funding opportunities. You can also find a variety of Government programs on our Funding Opportunities page.
Today’s issue of the Federal Register carries a “Notice of Public Meeting”, announcing the 2012 Regional, State and Local (RSL) Initiatives in Nanotechnology workshop, to be held 1-2 May in Portland, Oregon. This workshop will bring together leaders of regional, state, and local organizations to engage in dialog with the Federal government; economic development groups; investors and entrepreneurs; technology leaders; and scientists and engineers from industry, business, government, and
academia. The discussion will address a wide range of resource, organizational, and policy issues impacting RSL nanotechnology initiatives.
