The Minister showed a great interest in NIMS’ efforts on materials research and achievements since becoming an Independent Administrative Institution as well as the inter-linkages between NIMS and industry and acceptance of students and young scientists from abroad, and he asked how NIMS has made such a remarkable progress at the meeting with the Executive Vice Presidents, Dr. Muromachi and Mr. Iwase.
