  3. JAPAN NANO 2023


21st International Symposium on Material Strategy Comprehensive
"Construction of material DX platform promoted by Advanced Research Infrastructure for Materials and Nanotechnology



The Scope of JAPAN NANO 2023:

This international symposium aims to show general material innovation force and materials research activities of Japan clearly, to contribute to the development of various academic fields and the development of new industries, and to show the further possibilities of materials toward realization of Society 5.0, STI for SDGs, and a well-being society. We will invite domestic and foreign experts for this aim, and work toward cooperation not only with Japan, but also with US, Europe, and Asian countries. In addition, we will communicate the material DX platform concept driven by the advanced research infrastructure for materials and nanotechnology (ARIM).



Registration Deadline (onsite):
January 30, 2023
*Online registration is open
until symposium ends.


The participants can get an information of "The 21st International Nanotechnoligy Exhibition & Conference (nano tech 2023)"
