The two sides had discussed a potential tie-up on research since first meeting at the Particles 2008 International Conference (May 2008, Orlando, Florida, USA), and successfully concluded this agreement in April 2009 via the NIMS-NZ workshop on Nanomaterials (January 2009, NIMS).
This is the first MOU with a research institute in New Zealand for NIMS, and great expectations are placed on further activities.
