Infrastructure

To establish better awareness of the infrastructure available on the micro/nanofabrication and characterization facilities in the ANF community and thus promote a synergistic bridging among ANF members with interdisciplinary integration and communication. This working group provides a platform access to R&D facilties among participating members and facilitate R&D collaborations among members.

Nano safety and Risk Management

To co-ordinate nanosafety activities in the region through the Asia Nano Safe network, including harmonization of nano safety training, safety-by-design approach to nanotechnology development and translational nano research to the marketplace. Also, to provide a co-ordinated response for community concerns and engagement on nanotechnology safety and risk management issues. This working group has been playing an active role in the annual International Symposium on Nanotechnology Occupational and Environmental Health (NanOEH) through offering Asia Nanosafety Award to distinguished young researchers.

Coordinator
