Our good friend, Dr. Mike Roco http://wtec.org/nano2/#Coordinator would like to share with you “Nanotechnology Research Directions for Societal Needs in 2020.” Report Nano2 http://wtec.org/nano2/, which was placed for comments on Sept. 30 and posted in October 2010 is the international long-term view, with retrospective for the last ten years (2000-2010) and vision for the next ten years (2011-2020), prepared with input from leading experts from 35 countries (representing broader community for academic, industry and government stakeholders, including NNI). The full report, full set of slides and webcast are available on wtec.org/nano2/.

The next step is the preparation of the NNI three (2011-2013) year plan with what the US government agencies should do in regard to the bigger picture. This report has used the Nano2 report as input. The following step is the FY 2012 Annual Plan following the two reports: “Nano2 ten year Vision Long by 2020” report (Sept. 2010) and the 3-year Strategic Plan (Dec. 2010) as reference.

We encourage all members of the Nanotechnology Community to review the original report Nano2 http://wtec.org/nano2/.
