The Materials Genome Initiative* is a multi-agency initiative designed to create a new era of policy, resources, and infrastructure that support U.S. institutions in the effort to discover, manufacture, and deploy advanced materials twice as fast, at a fraction of the cost.
The National Information Standards Organization (NISO) has launched a new Primer Series on information management technology issues with the publication of the first primer on the topic of Research Data Management. Two more primers on the topics of Understanding Metadata and Linked Data for Cultural Institutions, respectively, will be released in coming months, with additional Primers to be published periodically.
InterNano, a service of the National Nanomanufacturing Network, informs and connects the nanomanufacturing community of researchers and practitioners. InterNano creates, collects, contextualizes, and disseminates relevant and timely resources, such as news highlights, reviews, processes, and topical assessments of the current state of practice in nanomanufacturing.
For Researchers: InterNano brings together content about nanomanufacturing from a variety of sources.

re3data.org is a global registry of research data repositories that covers research data repositories from different academic disciplines. It presents repositories for the permanent storage and access of data sets to researchers, funding bodies, publishers and scholarly institutions. re3data.org promotes a culture of sharing, increased access and better visibility of research data. re3data.org helps researchers to find appropriate repositories for the storage and access of research data.
The Nanomaterial Registry is an authoritative, fully curated resource that archives research data on nanomaterials and their biological and environmental implications. The large quantity of nanomaterial-focused research and production has created a vast and growing body of nanomaterial-centric data. Yet, critical knowledge gaps in nanotechnology need to be addressed so that the use of nanomaterials is not outpacing the understanding of their implications. The Nanomaterial Registry is a data-driven tool aimed at enabling researchers to close this knowledge gap.
Best Practices and Strategies for Retaining Engineering, Engineering Technology and Computing Students
The American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) provides access to important resources to help us explore promising practices and strategies for retaining students in Engineering, Engineering Technology and Computing (including Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Computer Technology, and related disciplines) programs.
