NTU-NIMS Joint Research Center

"Center of Strategic Materials Alliance for Research and Technology: SMART Center"

About the center

This center has been established in the campus of National Taiwan University (NTU) and in NIMS based on the contract for a joint research center which was concluded on July 26, 2013 between NTU and NIMS.
NTU and NIMS already concluded the Comprehensive Collaborative Agreement in 2012 and the International Cooperative Graduate School Agreement in 2013. Under these agreements, we have been promoting collaborations such as exchanging researchers and accepting students so far and also we held a joint workshop at NTU in 2013. This center is aiming to achieve further acceleration of collaborative research on strategic materials through long-term dispatching of researchers and shared use of research facilities.
