The Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry, JAPAN has just launched a long-term national program on nanotechnology materials (NMs). This program consists of 8 projects (PJs), and “Structuring Knowledge (SK)” PJ plays an extremely important role among them. Our main focus is on the relationship between process-structure- function for NMs. We here propose our strategy to develop new materials by SK on NMs, as well as completely new simulation technologies. With ontology technology, a “Nanomateria Platform” will give an extremely valuable technological platform for researchers and engineers on NMs, making a major paradigm shift in material industries, and bring us to a new era in material industries.
