    GNS at CEMES-CNRS part of $150 million Japanese Nanotechnology Program
    October 12, 2008
    The program involves four institutes outside of Japan which will host a satellite of the 'International Center for Materials Nanoarchitectonics' (MANA).
    The branch at CNRS in Toulouse will be lead by Christian JOACHIM from the departement of Nanoscience & Picotechnology and will be located in the CEMES-CNRS in Toulouse (France).

    The CNSI at UCLA, the University of Cambridge, the Georgia Institute of Technology will host the other three satellites.
    MANA is expected to create world-class research centers with global visibility and will be implemented under the supervision of a number of top scientists from Japan's National Institute for Materials Science. The 10 year, $150M program is aimed at developing innovative nanosystem & materials that contribute to sustainable development - realizing a major shift in materials research.
