Sustainable social construction with the nanotech-driven materials research
NIMS' policy, mission and vision of the future grounded in the perspective of building a sustainable infrastructure.
To fulfill our mission, NIMS has promoted research that is at the leading edge of the world’s materials science and has covered materials encompassing not only metals or ceramics but also organic materials and biomaterials.
- Fundamental research and generic / infrastructural technology research and development
- Dissemination of research results and promotion of their applications
- Shared use of NIMS facilities and equipment
- Training of researchers and engineers
Also, we have led to entire materials science as a core international organization — promoting technology transfer that uses our research results, shared facilities and equipment, in addition to encouraging human resource development.
NIMS has the stated materials strategy extending over the mid- and long-term perspective, and we will go forward with the following objectives in mind for the next 20 years.
