Mission Statement

  • The Asian NIR Consortium (ANC) is a private, non-profit international organization committed to promote education, research and applications related to near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) among Asian countries. Special emphasis is to be placed on the exchange of NIRS applications related to food, art and daily life, which are unique in Asian culture.
  • At present, the Consortium consists of five member countries: China, India, Japan, Korea and Thailand. In the future, we plan to encourage membership from other Asian countries as well.
  • Although NIRS research and application in Asia are more concentrated in the present member countries, the ANC looks forward to the expansion of NIRS throughout Asia in the near future.
