Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. (B&C®) is pleased to provide our Forecast 2022 to Nano and Other Emerging Chemical Technologies Blog readers, offering our best informed judgment as to the trends and key developments we expect to see in the new year. On October 8, 2021, the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO) announced the release of the 2021 National Nanotechnology Initiative Strategic Plan, outlining the goals, objectives, and actions for the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) over the next five years. After considering the recommendations from advisory bodies, stakeholders, and input from the public, NNI agencies determined that NNI’s overarching goals to support nanotechnology research and development (R&D), commercialization, infrastructure, and responsible development should remain and that a new goal should be added to focus efforts more clearly on education and the workforce. With the release of the plan, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) and the NNI agencies launched NNI’s next phase. More details on this, and expected regulatory changes of all varieties, are available in our Forecast for U.S. Federal and International Chemical Regulatory Policy 2022.
