Nurturing Young Leaders for the Future Generation

We foster the promising young researchers actively for the next generation. At GREEN, young leaders themselves were assigned the responsibility of group leaders. Each floor of NanoGREEN building, scheduled for completion in 2012, (Namiki site), has an open space available stimulate interactions between researchers of a variety of backgrounds under one roof.

Corporate researchers can obtain a doctoral degree at GREEN from partner universities can acquire necessary skills of working in the industry through their experience at NIMS.
