We are developing the core content of NanoMission in conjunction with the following scientific organisations :
National Nanotechnology Coordination Office
The NNCO assists in the preparation of multi-agency planning, budget and assessment documents. The NNCO is the point of contact on Federal nanotechnology activities for regional, state and local nanotechnology initiatives, government organizations, academia, industry, professional societies, foreign organizations, and others to exchange technical and programmatic information. In addition, the NNCO develops and makes available printed and other materials as directed by the NSET Subcommittee as well as maintains the NNI
The Institute of Physics
The Institute of Physics is a scientific membership organisation devoted to increasing the understanding and application of physics. It has an extensive worldwide membership (currently over 34,000) and is a leading communicator of physics with all audiences from specialists through government to the general public. Its publishing company, IOP Publishing, is a world leader in scientific publishing and the electronic dissemination of physics.
The National Physical Laboratory
The National Physical Laboratory is the United Kingdom’s national standards laboratory. It provides measurement services to government and industry covering: acoustics; analytical measurement; basic metrology; electrical and electromagnetic measurement; mathematics and scientific computing; ionising radiation; length; materials; mechanical metrology; optical radiation; photonics; thermal metrology and time. The NPL website provides details of research into measurement in all these areas, together with services available from NPL, news, events and publications.
VDI – Association of German Engineers
Established in 1856, the VDI is today the largest engineering association in Western Europe. In Germany, it is recognized as the representative of engineers both within the profession and in the public arena. As the leading institution for training and technology transfer among experts, it is also a partner at the preliminary stages of the decision-making process in matters of technological policy and for all questions that engineers face in their professional or public lives.
The Royal Society of Chemistry
The Royal Society of Chemistry is a large professional body for chemistry in the UK. It provides a forum for chemists and chemistry to exchange ideas and results and provides a network to encourage collaboration on new ventures. The Society recognises achievement through awards and endowed lectureships and assists young chemists by bursaries for various purposes. The Society is a major world publisher of journals and books and provides information services through its library and database system.
