Making Breakthroughs in Materials Technology toward Solving Global Environmental and Energy Issues

Kohei Uosaki, Director-General of GREEN

Research and development of efficient energy conversion, storage, and transport are carried out intensively worldwide. To realize these systems, it is essential to develop new materials and devises that effectively utilize the newly developed materials but it is impossible to win the global competition if in R&D is carried out via empirical approach.

In GREEN, leading scientists in fundamental science such as theory, simulation, and measurement, and in applied fields such as solar energy conversion, secondary batteries, and fuel cell, are gather together from not only NIMS but also from universities and industries are carrying out cutting edge research with close collaboration. GREEN also provides external scientists with most advanced equipments as well as knowledge and know-how of GREEN scientists through open-lab system so that GREEN will contribute to accelerate R&D in universities an industries.
