The aim of this MOU is to promote research efforts by NIMS and HFNL/USTC in connection with “Development of nanoprobe technology for single molecule science and advanced materials science.” USTC is located in Hefei City, Anhui Province and is a university belonging to the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). HFNL is an organization which is engaged in advanced research in materials science from the microscale to nanoscale, and in particular, has actively published pioneering research results in nanoscience and nanotechnology.
Taking advantage of the signing of this MOU, NIMS hopes to contribute to Chinese-Japanese research exchanges in nanomaterials science through close exchanges of research information, human exchanges of researchers, expansion of joint research, holding of joint symposiums, and other activities between NIMS and USTC.
