National Center for Nanoscience and Technology

The National Center for Nanoscience and Technology (NCNST) of China is a government initiated research institute with an emphasis on nanoscience and nanotechnology. The NCNST was initiated by the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and the Ministry of Education, and it was founded by the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Peking University, and Tsinghua University on March 33, 2003.

The governance of NCNST is carried out by the director and administrative staff with the aid of an academic committee under the leadership of a governing board. The first director of NCNST was Chunli Bai, the executive vice president of CAS. The current director is Chen Wang and the overseas director is Zhonglin Wang, Regents' Professor at the Georgia Institute of Technology. The governing board of NCNST consists of representatives from the National Development and Reform Commission, Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Health, the Beijing Municipal People's Government, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the Chinese Academy of Engineering, the National Natural Science Foundation of China, Peking University, and Tsinghua University. The academic committee is responsible for aiding the governing board to determine important research areas and moving directions of NCNST.

The NCNST mainly consists of following branches, laboratory for nanodevice, laboratory for nanomaterials, laboratory for biological effects of nanomaterials and nanosafety, laboratory for nanocharacterization, laboratory for nanostandardization, laboratory for nanomanufacture and applications, testing laboratory for nanostructures, nanofabrication laboratory, coordination laboratories, a website and some databases for nanoscience.  

In NCNST, basic and applied researches in nanoscience have been positioned as the main research directions. Its objective is to build a public technological platform and research base for nanoscience, which is featured with state- of- the- art equipments and is open to both domestic and international users.
