The Scope of JAPAN NANO 2022 :

With the emergence of global issues such as environmental and climate problems and the pandemic situation by the global epidemic of new coronavirus infections, the Science, Technology and Innovation for Sustainable Development Goals (STI for SDGs) is becoming more and more important. Furthermore, large-scale information processing and high-speed communication technology such as IoT and AI is promoted toward the realization of a super smart society (Society 5.0), and the digital transformation (DX) is desired in various fields.

The Nanotechnology Platform Japan has supported the promotion of science and technology by widely sharing advanced equipment regardless of industry, government, or academia. The project ends this fiscal year and we summarize the achievements of the project in last 10 years. In addition, we will survey the future brought about by the Advanced Research Infrastructure for Materials and Nanotechnology in Japan, which was newly launched to incorporate the DX into the material science field to strengthen material innovation force.
