NAMIS is an international research network on Nano and Micro Systems initiated by the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) and the Institute of Industrial Sciences (IIS) of the University of Tokyo, coordinated by Alain Bosseboeuf, CNRS Senior Researcher at C2N.
NAMIS was officially founded November the 2th, 2005 by 6 European and Asian organizations: CNRS (France), IIS/University of Tokyo (Japan), EPFL (Switzerland), IMTEK (Germany), SNU (Korea) and VTT (Finland). In the 2006-2010 period, new organizations from Canada (Polytechnique Montréal), South Korea (KIMM), France (ESIEE/université Paris- Est), Japan (Tohoku University), Taiwan (NTHU) and USA (University of Washington) successively joined NAMIS. In 2016 Tohoku university left NAMIS network while MESA+ Institute of Technology (The Netherlands) was welcome as a new partner.
The network now gathers 12 organizations from 10 countries representing more than 90 high rank laboratories or Institutes.
