The Material Research by Information Integration Initiative (MI2I), which was launched in July 2015 as a part of the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) Innovation Hub Construction Support Project, finished at the end of March 2020.
In this project, NIMS became a research hub in collaboration with JST, gathered human resources from many universities, national laboratories, companies, etc., and worked on data-driven materials science research. At the same time, we have formed a community in a new field, Materials Informatics.
After the completion of this project, activities at NIMS and other sites will be started and deployed, utilizing the network built at MI2I.
We would like to thank everyone who participated and supported us, and will continue to work with you to further develop data-driven materials science research.
