What is "NanotechJapan" ?

"NanotechJapan" is supported by the "Nanotechnology Platform Japan (NTPJ)" Program for the "Open Advanced Facilities Initiative for Innovation" under the sponsorship of the Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) and operated by National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS).

This program, started for ten years from 2012, is aiming to promote the research and development of nanotechnology areas by encouraging the share-use of cutting edge equipment at national laboratories and universities. The motivation to initiate this program is based on the thought that it is essential for nanotechnology to share the world top level equipment which could not be obtained and kept by individual scientists at the laboratories in universities and industries. The share-use of high-grade analytical tools, ultra fine fabrication equipment and molecular synthesis apparatus is now promoting the information and scientific exchange through the face to face discussion, and results in the innovation in nanotechnology.
