From February 25th to 26th, Japan-Morocco Handai Project on Functional Nanophotonics kick-off workshop

was held at MAScIR (Moroccan Foundation for Advanced Science, Innovation and Research), Morocco.

 

Under the Osaka University International Joint Research Promotion Program, which was selected last year is

based on a partnership between photonics center in Osaka, which is headed by Professor Satoshi Kawata,

with optics and photonics center in MAScIR, which is headed by Professor Zouheir Sekkat. This project is

entitled “Nano-functional Photonics: study of new nano optical/photonic functions originating from the intera-

ction of photon and nano-structured materials” and is running in the period April 2014– March 2017. The goal

of the project is to carry joint advanced applied research and innovation as well as exchange of researchers and

expertise.

 

This workshop gathered principal researchers and students involved in the project from both sides of Japan and

Morocco. All the participants reported their latest scientific results on nano-functional photonics and discussed

about collaboration to find pathways to innovative nano optical/photonic functions. The International Year of

Light and Light-based Technologies 2015 has just started. The Handai Project Kick-Off Workshop was an extre-

mely good opportunity for all the participants to start sailing in the same boat in the International Year of Light to

get to a new port in a new continent.
