The International Center for Materials Nanoarchitectonics (MANA) has held the MANA International Symposium every year to discuss the current status and the future perspective of materials science and technology based on state-of-the-art nanotechnology, inviting many distinguished scientists including Nobel laureates from around the world.
MANA, as its name implies, is attempting to create a new paradigm for materials development based on an innovative technology system called “nanoarchitectonics”. The Center, with its three research fields of Nano-Materials, Nano-System and Nano-Theory, is working on new innovations in materials development that can contribute to a sustainable society.
This year marks the 11th annual MANA International Symposium and we design the symposium to initiate discussion about “Nano Perceptive Materials, Devices, and Systems”. In addition to guest lectures by renowned nanotechnology and material science researchers from relevant research fields, the researchers from MANA will present their latest findings.
We hope many scientists who are interested in materials science and technology will join this symposium and obtain fresh inspiration from the talks and discussions.
MANA was founded in October 2007 with the support of the World Premier International Research Center Initiative (WPI Program) of Japan’s Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT). MANA’s host institution, National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS), is the only non-university organization out of nine successful programs to host a WPI center.
