Goals and objectives
 
This workshop will present the current outlooks and challenges for the future in some fields of research related to
- bio- and soft-materials,
- inorganic nanomaterials
- spintronics, photonics and electronic devices.

This joint meeting will gather researchers from 2 institutes of Tohoku University and from 3 institutes of the University of Rennes 1. It is a step further in a process engaged after recent exchanges between the two Universities, with the ultimate goal to strengthen scientific relationships and collaborations between Rennes and Sendai on some highly competitive subjects.
