An important mission for higher educations is to share their vision and resources to the society. A national program for nanoscience and nanotechnology that consists of academic excellence research, industrial utilization of nanotech, core facility and sharing mechanism, and human resource development, was initiated in Taiwan since 2003. The project goals of the human resource development include promoting life-long learning and popularization of nanotechnology knowledge, upgrading the advanced and professional education of nanotechnology, K-12 education and extension to the general public, along with international exchange and cooperation. By a systematic approach and collaboration with different agencies, they have successfully accomplished their missions. Dr. Fuh-Sheng Shieu will share their experiences of how they implemented nanoscience and nanotechnology education in their country and extended their efforts around the globe. The outcome of this program has made Taiwan one of the leading countries in nano education in the world.
