Abstract: Proposed Project: Task 1 NSF’s priority area in Nanoscale Science & Engineering (NS&E) has been funded since FY 2001 and is funded at approximately $335 million in FY 2005. The goals of the NS&E priority area are to support fundamental knowledge creation across disciplinary principles, phenomena, and tools at the nanoscale, PO 00000 Frm 00079 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 and to catalyze synergistic science and engineering research and education in emerging areas of nanoscale science and technology. A NSF contractor will study partnerships and knowledge transfer and innovation activities related to (1) NS&E (Nanoscale Interdisciplinary Research Team (NIRT) and Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center (NSEC) awards made during FY 2001–2004 and (2) NSF awards to two networks that work closely with NS&E—the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network (NNIN) and the Network for Computational Nanotechnology (NCN). Using a standard set of definitions to ensure comparability across awards, the contractor will collect data on patents; licenses; state, local, and industrial partnerships; start-up companies; and other indicators of technology transfer and collaboration with state and local governments and industry. To the extent possible, the contractor will also collect data on state and private investments in activities that complement or build upon the NSF awards. For geographic areas where there has been significant NSF funding under these activities, the contractor may propose to provide an initial assessment of the contribution of these awards to the regional economy. The contractor’s data collection shall include, but need not be limited to, gathering information from public and private databases and conducting interviews with NS&E grantees to fill remaining gaps. The data will be integrated into a database with information on each award. The database will be consistent with the database that the EEC Division has constructed for the NSECs. The analyses will summarize the data overall and by mode of funding (NIRT, NSEC, NNIN, NCN) and identify key topics, if any that are a major focus for knowledge transfer and partnerships. Task 2 The subcontractor will define and present alternative methodologies for documenting the creation of an interdisciplinary research community in nonotechnology. These methodologies shall provide a means to qualitatively assess the size and scope of the interdisciplinary research community in nanoscience and nanoengineering from the period 2001–2004. This analysis will also provide a basis for determining how collaborations lead to new directions in research and education in nanoscience and engineering. Most of the data for this effort will be gathered directly from the Internet. However, the contractor may contact selected NS&E, NNIN, or NCN awardees to fill data gaps or to confirm data.

ACTION: Notice of the OMB review of information collection and solicitation of public comment. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The NRC has recently submitted to OMB for review the following proposal for the collection of information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). The NRC hereby informs potential respondents that an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and that a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. 1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: Extension. 2.

The form number if applicable: Not applicable. 4. How often the collection is required: On occasion. 5. Who will be required or asked to report: Nuclear power reactor licensees and gaseous diffusion plant certificate holders. 6. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 26. 7. The estimated number of annual respondents: 11. 8. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 1,991 hours (1810 reporting [121 hours per response] and 181 recordkeeping [16.45 hours per recordkeeper]). 9. An indication of whether Section 3507(d), Pub. L. 104–13 applies: Not applicable. 10. Abstract: The NRC’s Enforcement Policy addresses circumstances in which the NRC may exercise enforcement discretion. A specific type of enforcement discretion is designated as a Notice of Enforcement Discretion (NOED) and relates to circumstances which may arise where a nuclear power plant licensee’s compliance with a Technical Specification Limiting Condition for Operation or with other license conditions would involve an unnecessary plant transient or shutdown, or performance of testing, inspection, or system realignment that is inappropriate for the specific plant conditions, or unnecessary delays in plant startup without a corresponding health and safety benefit. Similarly, for a gaseous diffusion plant, circumstances may arise where compliance with a Technical Safety Requirement or other condition would unnecessarily call for a total plant shutdown, or, notwithstanding that a safety, safeguards or security feature was degraded or inoperable, compliance would unnecessarily place the plant in a transient or condition where those features could be required. A licensee or certificate holder seeking the issuance of an NOED must provide a written justification, in accordance with guidance provided in NRC Inspection Manual, Part 9900, which documents the safety basis for the request and provides whatever other information the NRC staff deems necessary to decide whether or not to exercise discretion.

    Abstract:
    Proposed Project:

Task 1

    NSF's priority area in Nanoscale Science & Engineering (NS&E) has 
been funded since FY 2001 and is funded at approximately $335 million 
in FY 2005. The goals of the NS&E priority area are to support 
fundamental knowledge creation across disciplinary principles, 
phenomena, and tools at the nanoscale, and to catalyze synergistic

partnerships and knowledge transfer and innovation activities related 
to (1) NS&E (Nanoscale Interdisciplinary Research Team (NIRT) and 
Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center (NSEC) awards made during FY 
2001 -2004 and (2) NSF awards to two networks that work closely with 
NS&E--the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network (NNIN) and the 
Network for Computational Nanotechnology (NCN).
    Using a standard set of definitions to ensure comparability across 
awards, the contractor will collect data on patents; licenses; state, 
local, and industrial partnerships; start-up companies; and other 
indicators of technology transfer and collaboration with state and 
local governments and industry. To the extent possible, the contractor 
will also collect data on state and private investments in activities 
that complement or build upon the NSF awards. For geographic areas 
where there has been significant NSF funding under these activities, 
the contractor may propose to provide an initial assessment of the 
contribution of these awards to the regional economy. The contractor's 
data collection shall include, but need not be limited to, gathering 
information from public and private databases and conducting interviews 
with NS&E grantees to fill remaining gaps. The data will be integrated 
into a database with information on each award. The database will be 
consistent with the database that the EEC Division has constructed for 
the NSECs.
    The analyses will summarize the data overall and by mode of funding 
(NIRT, NSEC, NNIN, NCN) and identify key topics, if any that are a 
major focus for knowledge transfer and partnerships.

Task 2

    The subcontractor will define and present alternative methodologies 
for documenting the creation of an interdisciplinary research community 
in nonotechnology. These methodologies shall provide a means to 
qualitatively assess the size and scope of the interdisciplinary 
research community in nanoscience and nanoengineering from the period 
2001-2004. This analysis will also provide a basis for determining how 
collaborations lead to new directions in research and education in 
nanoscience and engineering. Most of the data for this effort will be 
gathered directly from the Internet. However, the contractor may 
contact selected NS&E, NNIN, or NCN awardees to fill data gaps or to 
confirm data.
