UAlbany NanoCollege Partners with Leading Japanese Institutions to Host Nanotechnology Conference

Albany, NY | Posted on December 8th, 2009

The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering ("CNSE") of the University at Albany will host a first-ever conference this week that is designed to enable strategic partnerships with several leading Japanese organizations for advanced research, development and commercialization of leading-edge nanoscale technologies.

Working in collaboration with Japan's National Institute for Materials Science ("NIMS") and National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology ("AIST"), and the University of Tsukuba, the UAlbany NanoCollege will host the "Joint Workshop on Advanced Materials Research for Nanotechnology" on December 10 and 11 at CNSE's Albany NanoTech Complex.

The event will include strategic discussions that are intended to pursue cooperative partnerships and programs targeting joint research for nanoelectronics, power electronics and clean energy. Specific focus areas will include magnetic, organic and biotechnology materials for use in a variety of cutting-edge applications in nanoelectronics, health care and renewable energy, among other areas.

Dr. Alain E. Kaloyeros, Senior Vice President and Chief Executive Officer of CNSE, said, "The UAlbany NanoCollege is delighted to host this first-ever conference in partnership with Japan's leading institutions for nanotechnology education, research and development. This novel effort to build strategic alliances and collaborative programs will both support and enhance the development of leading-edge nanoscale technologies, providing unique educational opportunities and offering critical innovations to meet the growing needs of industry."

Conference Co-Chair Dr. Makoto Hirayama, CNSE Associate Vice President for Asian and Pacific Rim Strategic Alliances, said, "We look forward to working with the National Institute for Materials Science, the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, and the University of Tsukuba through this conference. This event provides a platform to advance materials research for a variety of important nanotechnology applications, and offers a unique opportunity to develop strategic partnerships that will engage the strengths and capabilities of each institution."

Conference Co-Chair Dr. Toyohiro Chikyou, Managing Director of the NIMS Advanced Electric Materials Center, said, "It is a pleasure to collaborate with the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering, a recognized global leader in nanotechnology education and innovation, to advance research and development for leading-edge nanoscale technologies. We expect that the discussions at this conference will provide a framework to support joint partnerships and programs that each
organization will find beneficial, and we are excited to pursue this opportunity."

The event will mark the fourth global conference hosted this year by the UAlbany NanoCollege, which have collectively brought hundreds of leading faculty, scientists and researchers from around the world to CNSE's Albany NanoTech Complex. Previous events included the Nanoscale Measurement Challenges for Energy Applications Global Workshop, April 26 through 28; The 2009 International Conference on Frontiers of Characterization and Metrology for Nanoelectronics, held May 11 through 15; and the Symposium on Advances in Higher Education in Nanoscale Science and Engineering, August 5 through 8.
