What is NINE? (video)

NATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR NANO-ENGINEERING

The National Institute for Nano-Engineering (NINE) is a government/university/industry collaboration formed to develop the next generation of innovation leaders for the U.S. by involving students in large scale multi-disciplinary research projects focused on developing nano-enabled solutions to important national problems. NINE addresses a growing national concern; that America’s science and engineering education and innovation engine is in danger.  The America COMPETES Act, signed in August 2007, provides a national strategy to address this concern.

In accord with this strategy, NINE was established as a national innovation hub in the exciting and rapidly developing field of nano-engineering.  NINE is intended to be the model of a novel partnership between universities and companies throughout the nation and the Department of Energy (DOE), with Sandia National Laboratories (Albuquerque, NM) as the host lab for NINE.
