Abstract : This report on Regional, State, and Local (RSL) Initiatives in Nanotechnology is the result of a topical workshop convened 1-3 April 2009 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, by the Nanoscale Science, Engineering, and Technology (NSET) Subcommittee of the National Science and Technology Council's Committee on Technology. The report was made possible with the help of the NSET Subcommittee's Nanomanufacturing, Industry Liaison, and Innovation (NILI) Working Group and with staff support from the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO). The workshop is part of the NSET Subcommittee's long-range planning effort for the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI), the multi-agency Federal nanotechnology program. The NNI is driven by long-term goals based on broad community input, in part received through workshops such as this one. The NNI seeks to accelerate the research, development, and deployment of nanotechnology to address national needs, enhance our nation's economy, and improve the quality of life in the United States and around the world through the coordination of activities and programs across the Federal Government.
