The International Center for Materials Nanoarchitectonics (MANA) was launched in 2007 with the vision of “pioneering a new paradigm in materials development on the basis of ‘nanoarchitectonics’”. “During the 10-year World Premier Institute Program, we implemented wide ranging plans such as creating an international environment for research and establishing a global network of nanotechnology research centers to achieve our goals,” says Yoshio Bando, MANA’s Executive Advisor. “Another important mission was devising methods for nurturing young scientists who would take the lead in the next generation of research on nanoarchitectonics. This commitment led to the birth of the International Center for Young Scientists (ICYS) for postdoctoral scientists. The ICYS has been very successful and led to the launch of the Independent Scientists System for young researchers.”
