Taiwan launches consortium to promote nanotechnology

Taipei, Jan. 22 (CNA) Taiwan's National Applied Research Laboratories (NARL) launched a platform Tuesday to further promote nanotechnology in the private sector and academia, the organizers said. "The Nano Device Consortium can serve as an innovation bridge between industry and academia, narrowing the gap between the two," Chyi Jen-inn, the NARL's vice president, said at the consortium's launch ceremony. Taiwan is already good at making nanotechnology materials that can be used in semiconductor manufacturing, one of Taiwan's most critical industries, but further advances can be made in the field, he said. Chyi said the consortium and its laboratories will do their utmost to promote the industry and hope to stand out as a pioneer on the international stage. Based in Hsinchu, the consortium will share facilities at the NARL's National Nano Device Laboratories, the organizers said. (By James Lee)
