American Nano Society was established in 2010 as a medium for the ever-expanding community of nanoscience and nanotechnology. For over 10 years, the Society was the largest community in the realm of nano-related topics with over 7,000 members from 110 countries.

In 2021, the Society adopted a new business model to better serve the community. Instead of competing with other scientific societies covering specialized areas associated with nanoscience and nanotechnology, the Society provides effective links to build a meaningful network for those who are interested in nanotechnology.
