ATIP02. 032: R&D, Demonstration & Deployment in Atomic Energy

ABSTRACT: This Report is based on a talk delivered by Dr. Anil Kakodkar, Chairman, Atomic Energy Commission and Secretary to the Department of Atomic Energy, Government of India. It describes the impact of technology deployment on the economy of the country and gives thoughts about what technologies should be pursued in the nuclear field during the coming years to meet India’s energy requirements.

ATIP02.033: Overview of Nano Science and Technology in Taiwan

ABSTRACT: This report outlines nanoscience and nanotechnology research sponsored by Taiwan’s National Government. Plans are to spend nearly US$700M through 2007, with the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) to begin in 2003. Among the goals of the NNI are active participation in nanotechnology of more than 800 companies by 2008 and 1,500 companies by 2012. Revenues from nanotechnology enterprise are projected to exceed US$8.8B by 2008. Activities of Academica Sinica, several universities and governmental laboratories are summarized.

ATIP02. 034: Synchrotron Radiation (in Asia)

ABSTRACT: Devices based on electron beams for producing radiation include synchrotrons, free-electron lasers, and (proposed) energy-recovery linear accelerators. These facilities are described in this report along with the characteristics of the radiation each produces. The status of synchrotron facilities in nine Asian countries is described; other synchrotrons under development are mentioned briefly. We discuss the existing forums and the need for creating new forums and international collaborations in Asia. For comparison, we cite a few examples of European Institutions and their large-scale science projects which brought together numerous scientists.

ATIP02. 035: Quantum Information and Communication in Israel

ABSTRACT: This reports outlines research at public institutions in Israel focused on Quantum Information and Communication. A brief description of the activities of the different Israeli research groups in quantum information (cryptography or computing) and related fields (quantum algorithms, quantum theory, quantum optics) is presented.

ATIP02. 036: The Protein 3000 Program

ABSTRACT: Japan’s Protein 3000 program is a coordinated effort to determine approximately 3,000 protein structures in only five years. Unusual for large-scale projects in Japan, the Protein 3000 program provides funding for both national research institutes and universities. Our report provides an overview to activities under the program and an overall assessment of structural genomics research efforts in Japan.

ATIP offers a full range of information services including reports, assessments, briefings, visits, sample procurements, workshops, cultural/business sensitivity training, and liaison activities, all performed by our on-the- ground multilingual experts.
