    The system of promoting science and technology (S&T) policy in Japan and the strategy for nanotechnology are described in this article. The prioritized promotion area in nano technology along with the budget trends during the third S&T basic plan are also addressed. The important nanotechnology research centers and networks in nanotechnology are described. Furthermore, the importance of nanotechnology in Japan is explained with a new funding program for next-generation leading researchers. Finally, a significant change of R&D strategy from the third to the fourth S&T basic plans is shown, and the positioning of nanotechnology is briefly introduced. View full abstract»

    Nanotechnology has been utilized for a long time in Kyoto, an old capital of Japan. Kyoto is well known not only as a traditional and cultural town but also as one of the most innovative towns in Japan. It has produced many worldwide technology-based start-up (venture) companies such as Kyocera, Nintendo, Omron, Murata MFG, Rohm, Horiba MFG, and Nichicon, among others. In these two features of tradition and innovation, there exists potentially a close correlation. Lords or emperor in the capital had gathered the highest level of technologies during their times and created various kinds of artistic works and buildings. They felt that the concentration of high technology and the creation of new technologies are essential to build new industry as well as to spur the activity of the principal towns.

    It is well recognized that power consumption and heat removal in state-of-the-art integrated circuits (ICs) with the nanometer size of transistors is an urgent challenge. The electronic industry's transition to multicore designs, where the performance increase is achieved not via the increase in the clock frequency but rather through the increase in the number of processors, helped to alleviate some of the thermal issues but has not solved the problem of the nonuniformity of heat distribution inside a computer chip.
