South Korea's Institute of Machinery and Materials signs a five-year memorandum of understanding with two Singapore institutes to research and develop nanotechnologies across nine sectors that could apply in biomedicine. The Korean institute and Singapore's Institute of Materials Research and Engineering and Institute of Manufacturing Technology in the Agency for Science Technology and Research will conduct joint academic meetings, symposia, research and development projects. Pooling resources will progress platform technologies that will support the related industries. Achievements in sectors, including laser and mechanical machining, metric measurements, fluidics device manufacturing and other nano-processes topics and materials, could apply to the medical and biomedical industry, the Korean institute says. Other sectors to be studied include functional coatings, roll-to-roll printed electronics, imprint lithography, composites and green energy applications
