Taiwan exhibits nanotechnology prowess
The government yesterday kicked off a five-day nanotechnology marathon in a bid to drive innovation in Taiwan's nanoscience research efforts and jumpstart a manufacturing revolution that capitalizes on advanced or new materials.
The Ministry of Economic Affairs, one of the lead organizers of Taiwan Nanotech 2005, also conferred yesterday the Outstanding Nanotech Award - the first in Taiwan's history - to industry pioneers Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. and Professor Lin Jiang-jen for their innovations and achievements in nanotechnology research and development.
