Launching new interface for InterNano – the NNN online clearinghouse of resources for nanomanufacturing

September 4 (Amherst ,MA) – The National Nanomanufacturing Network (NNN) is an alliance of academic, government, and industry partners that cooperates to advance nanomanufacturing strength in the U.S. Funded by the National Science Foundation through the Center for Hierarchical Manufacturing at the University of assachusetts Amherst, the goals of the NNN are to build a network of experts and organizations that facilitates the transition of nanotechnologies from core laboratory research to production manufacturing and to foster technology transfer and information exchange between all community stakeholders.

InterNano is a web service of the NNN which supports the information needs of the nanomanufacturing community by bringing together resources about the advances in applications, devices, metrology, and materials that will facilitate the commercial development and/or marketable application of nanotechnology. As an information clearinghouse, InterNano both aggregates existing resources related to nanomanufacturing and creates original resources, including news highlights, review and feature articles, directories, and more.

The NNN is introducing a new, streamlined design for InterNano in conjunction with its exhibit at the NanoBusiness Conference 2009 in Chicago. Based on statistics, user feedback, information architecture exercises, and usability testing, the new interface emphasizes the site’s strengths and still provides one-click access to all the community tools and content areas.

Existing InterNano content features include:
Directory of experts and organizations engaged in nanomanufacturing
Original expert reviews of recently published literature relevant to nanomanufacturing
Digital library of nanomanufacturing research, government reports, and federally-funded
education and outreach efforts for nanomanufacturing
Calendar of nanotechnology and nanomanufacturing events
InterNano taxonomy of nanomanufacturing terminologies
Links, original news headlines, image galleries, and more
New InterNano content features include:
Filtered feed of select nanomanufacturing news headlines from over fifteen media sources
Article commenting and LinkedIn and Twitter accounts to facilitate discussion among users
Enhanced Taxonomy functionality for information discovery
Information and a query form for partnering with the NNN
Nanomanufacturing Job Opportunities

InterNano accepts press releases, research and employment announcements, citations, calls for papers, images, and events information. All submissions are subject to approval by the site administrators before being published.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
