EPIC is a partner in the European project MONA, a support action that works on merging optics and nanotechnologies. A major objective of the project is the creation of a roadmap for nanophotonics. EPIC was invited to Korea to make plenary presentations on the nanophotonics roadmap at two different meetings in Korea.>> Browse documents

18 to 28 April 2006:
"Following an invitation to participate in a joint symposium sponsored by the European Commission (EC) and the National Science Commission (NSC) of Taiwan, I travelled to Taiwan where I presented the MONA project in Taipei and Hsinchu, distributing the MONA Frame-of-Reference study. In return, I received extensive quantitative information on the National Nanotechnology Programme in Taiwan. This information has been synthesised and organised in the CD-ROM, “MONA-Merging Optics and Nanotechnologies in Euope and Asia, vol.1”. The meetings with the NSC and with the Nano Device Laboratory (NDL) were characterised by open and enthusiastic exchanges of information about ongoing projects and future opportunities. Both sides have agreed to schedule further discussions, with the next meeting to be held in Italy in September, 2006."
