Paper Abstract

This report describes the strategy after the Micromachine Research and Development project. The proposal was made in a committee meeting primary attended by members of the Micromachine Center that was held last fiscal year. It is concluded that the combination of NANOstructures on MICROsystems (NANO-ON-MICRO) plays a very important role for nanotechnology as well as conventional manufacturing technology. To promote this strategic approach, the action taken immediately is mentioned as three in one: infrastructure, consulting service and grant for innovative ideas. The innovative ideas are surely appearing from the promising area of manufacturing, e.g. multimaterial MEMS/NEMS, 3D MEMS/NEMS, micro/nanomanipulation, and design/simulation.
