About the MAGNET Program
The MAGNET Program, in the Office of the Chief Scientist of the Ministry of Industry, Trade & Labor, sponsors innovative generic industry-oriented technologies to strengthen the country's technological expertise and enhance competitiveness.
MAGNET operates in five main tracks. The common denominator collaboration is a win-win proposition. Both industrial companies and academic research groups are better able to continue developing new and innovative products through synergetic collaboration than if it each worked alone.
