  • National Science and Technology Council: Subcommittee in the Materials Genome Initiative (est. 2011)– Co-chaired by OSTP, DOE, and NIST with Deputy Chairs from ONR and AFRL. Participants include: DOD (ARL, OSD), DOE, NASA, NIST, NSF, and USGS.
  • U.S. National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI): Description of the NNI Nanotechnology Knowledge Infrastructure signature initiative to coordinate activites around the development of a nanotechnology cyber-toolbox and data infrastructure.
  • Networking and Information Technology Research and Development Program (NITRD): NITRD creates opportunities for coordination of big data research and development activities across the Federal Government.
  • National Network for Manufacturing Innovation (NNMI): NNMI is a network of regional hubs to accelerate development and adoption of cutting-edge manufacturing technologies.
  • Ab-Initio Electronic Structure Library: Beta release of the Ab-Initio Electronic Structure Library (AFLOWLIB), maintained by Duke University in partnership with the Office of Naval Research, with open access to over 17,000 compounds derived from the Inorganic Crystal Structure Database and over 160,000 binary alloys
  • The Department of Energy’s Hydrogen Storage Materials Database provides access to comprehensive material property data for adsorbents, chemical hydrides, and metal hydrides to help support the advancement of hydrogen storage materials research.
