The mission of core facilities for nanoscience and nanotechnology at the Academia Sinica (NanoCore) is to support and promote the advanced research on nanoscience and nanotechnology, such as the studies on nanostructures,
nanomaterials, probes and manipulation techniques, nanodevices, and nanobiotechnology.
In order to upgrade the quality and image of nanoproducts, protect consumer welfare, and promote a sound development of the domestic nano industry, the Taiwanese Ministry of Economic Affairs initiated the promotion of a 'nanoproduct certification system' (nanoMARK).
NDL has been playing a significant role in support of universities in Taiwan for research and development in advance semiconductor process technologies, and educating and training high-tech people for the microelectronics industries.
In a joint effort with Taiwan IOSH, MOHW, BSMI and ITRI, Taiwan EPA has established this platform to exchange most updated information and knowledge among academia, industry sectors, government institutions and other stakeholders on nanotechnology environmental health and safety (EHS) issues.
