The National University of Singapore (NUS) acknowledges the global trend that nanotechnology is expected to be a key technology.
NUS, in tradition of spearheading cutting-edge research programs, has launched the NUS Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Initiative (NUSNNI) to promote this area of research. The aim of NUSNNI is to initiate and coordinate long-term nanoscience and engineering research. Our objective is to achieve fundamental discoveries of novel phenomena, processes and tools.
To do this, we tie-up collaborative efforts between various disciplines within the university faculties and interested research partners.
We provide the necessary support to facilitate efforts by faculties, researchers and students interested in pursuing this area of research.
In the light of the University's commitment to nanoscience and nanotechnology research, NUSNNI's role to its development and promotion is to optimise resources and focus on multidisciplinary strategic programmes.
