    to further identify NNI investments Most smaller agencies restrict their funded activities to a few PCAs where they can have a more significant impact for example the Food and Drug Administration Environmental Protection Agency National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health and Consumer Products Safety Commission together provide roughly 40 of the funding for Environment Health and Safety research PCA7 compared to 30 from NSF and 20 from NIH Looking at individual agencies we see that the requested appropriations for many agencies fall between the estimated 2012 expenditures and what they requested a year ago For DOD NASA and FDA it is below both 2012 numbers DOE is requesting a 127 Million increase over their 2012 estimate to 443 Million But even that pales in comparison to the 611 Million in last year s request which Congress cut nearly in half And despite several years at the top of the request chart DOE is behind NIH DOD and NSF in actually getting money on the street 2011 actual and 2012 estimated In terms of program focus the Supplement notes the continuing emphasis on the three current NNI Signature Initiatives while hinting that 2 or more additional signature areas may be approved in the near future It also highlights the connections between NNI investments and wider initiatives such as the Materials Genome Initiative and the Advanced Manufacturing Partnership In the proposed 2013 budget Solar Energy Collection and Conversion 112 Million gets the largest increase and would edge out Nanoelectronics for 2020 and Beyond 110 Million for the first time Sustainable Nanomanufacturing would bump up to 84 Million The NNI briefing memo on the budget available at nano gov node 750 notes that two of the applied Program Component Areas Nanoscale Devices and Systems PCA 3 and Nanomanufacturing PCA 5 account for over 1 2 Billion in the 2013 proposal a reflection of the increasing emphasis on commercially relevant technology and processes Overall we should probably be pleased to see that the NNI is holding its own in a very tough budget climate One encouraging fact is that Congress provided most of the NNI agencies with approved budgets relatively early this year This makes it easier for them to plan out their programs and puts the 2012 estimated expenditures on a firmer footing than they have been in recent years I encourage those of you interested in more specific information on individual agency activities or anyone looking for good examples of currently funded research to check out the full report http nano gov node 748 NANO NEWS REGISTER TODAY Nanotech Commercialization Conference April 4 5 2012 Research Triangle Durham NC www nanoevent org http wraltechwire com business tech wire news blogpost 10829457 IBM and IBN Treating MRSA With Nanotechnology and Nanomedicine in February s Edition of Healthcare Global http world einnews com 247pr 264415 Using Body Heat to Recharge Cellphone Laptop http blogs voanews com science world 2012 02 24 using body heat to recharge cellphone laptop Is Maynard going over to

    specific questions he says They re the questions associated with a specifically designed material The same thing with titanium dioxide found in sunscreens Shrink them down to nanosize and you get concerns raised by advocacy groups such as the Friends of the Earth and others involved in the lawsuit against the FDA but the research says titanium dioxide even at that size is still pretty benign It has taken Maynard a few years to reach this point in his thinking about nanotech Many in the nanotech business community might remember Maynard when he was scientific adviser for the Wilson Center s Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies PEN between 2005 and 2008 The PEN raised many questions about the potential risks of nanomaterials Has he changed since his Wilson Center days I have which is I think inevitable If you take a young field our knowledge is going to change over time Maynard says And if we don t change our opinions based on that knowledge there s something wrong But one thing that has not changed is his belief that if nanotech is going to develop into a sustainable industry that is economically robust it needs to also be socially robust and develop with an eye toward social implications It makes a lot of business sense if you re developing any new technology not just nanotech or whatever to be aware of the possiblities of what might go wrong with that technology and those products and shore things up as early as possible he says The problem though is that roughly 10 years after these questions were first asked after the U S government has invested millions in looking at the environmental and health implications of nanotechnology we still are not much wiser We know a lot more now Maynard says The question is do we know a lot more that s useful now That s what I would debate The problem he says is that the wrong questions are being asked Take for example carbon nanotubes There is an assumption by many researchers Maynard said that the material is similar to asbestos But nanotubes are not straight long rigid fibers yet this assumption is driving the research I am quite often concerned that you talk to toxicology groups doing research on carbon nanotubes I don t think many of them could actually accurately describe to you the physical form or nature of a carbon nanotube And yet they re doing research under various assumptions of what these things are like So this is the mission of Maynard s Risk Science Center to start discussions about the risks of technology with a grounding in real science and not on speculation taking and evidence based approach He s come a long way since the early 1990s Maynard now 46 worked on his Ph D at Cambridge in the UK using advanced microscopy techniques to analyze airborne particles At the time many of his colleagues told him he was wasting his time There

    is required is one of strategic realignment rather than additional funding They do however go on to propose new cross cutting activities that could hasten progress in the field with modest cost of 24M yr again for five years to be spent as follows Informatics 5 million per year to support the development of robust informatics systems and tools for managing and using information on the EHS effects of ENMs Instrumentation 10 million per year to translate existing measurement and characterization techniques into platforms that are accessible and relevant to EHS research and to develop new EHS specific measurement and characterization techniques for assessing ENMs under a variety of conditions Materials 3 5million per year to develop and distribute benchmark ENMs Sources 2 million per year to characterize sources of ENM release and exposure throughout the value chain and lifecycle of products Networks 2 million per year in new funding for the next 5 years should be invested in developing integrated researcher and stakeholder networks that facilitate the sharing of information and the translation of knowledge to effective use They explicitly recognize that these increased funding levels are not likely to be met by the budget requests of any one agency or institute but need to be garnered through a coordinated effort on the part of the nanomaterial community to leverage additional resources from public private and international initiatives to support critical cross cutting research This is an aspect of the report the NanoBCA community should consider carefully The informatics instrumentation and materials proposals would seem particularly relevant to us and we should consider how we might facilitate them and ensure that their design is sensitive to the needs of industrial participants Equally important is what the report does not say This report is about research not regulation It does not recommend new regulatory approaches for nanomaterials nor does it suggest that regulatory agencies need to go beyond their current approaches to obtain needed information about individual nanomaterials While it encourages the development of research protocols based on high throughput screening and predictive modeling it makes no suggestion for how or when such protocols would be adopted for regulatory purposes The report does not call for an expansion of the NNI definition of nanomaterials it quite comfortably accepts the approximate 1 100 nm regime and proposes that risks be prioritized based on the emergence of novel size dependent biological or environmental activity within that range It makes no sweeping statements about the dangers of any particular nanomaterial class of nanomaterial or type of nano enabled product It identifies no significant risks common to all nanomaterials stating in fact that the size range used to describe ENMs 1 100 nm has relatively little bearing itself in determining the risk to people or the environment Nonetheless the report has drawn attention from the media with several articles adopting a negative tone mirroring the Academies own press release which said the future of safe and sustainable nanotechnology is uncertain Major coverage includes Cornelia
