Bob Grahame calls our attention to an article in the Taipei Times in Taiwan ("ITRI preparing nanotech center", 18 July 2001) which reports that the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) is preparing for the establishment of a nanotechnology center to help foster Taiwan's next-generation high technology development. ITRI is planning to establish the Center for Applied Nanotechnology Institutes (CANTI) in January 2002, with an investment of NT$10 billion (US$286 million) in the first five years. According to the report, the new Center will focus its efforts in five major areas: nanomaterials, nanoelectronics, nano opti-electronics, nano chemicals and nano biotechnology.
