The Society does not use any sort of public funds. We solely rely on the membership dues. To effectively and efficiently invest our budget on the services, which may assist the nanotechnology community, we have limited our expenditures including unnecessary staff and office expenses. Contrary to the common business model of scientific societies, we have no expanding ambition.
Instead, we carefully use our limited budget to directly serve the community rather than the organization.
We have built all our online infrastructure from scratch to tailor our systems according to our services. For example, we designed a simple and powerful peer-review system to make the process easy to use for both applicants and reviews while matching potential reviewers for each application.
We are conducting a multi-million dollar project for the analysis of scientific journals to assist nanotechnology researchers in finding the best media for their research works.
