UT, founded in 1794, has cooperated with Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) sponsored by the United States Department of Energy (DOE) on managing The Bredesen Center to promote graduate education and interdisciplinary research, which especially focuses on energy and data science. The ICGP allows us to realize more fruitful trilateral collaboration among NIMS-UT-ORNL.

It is expected that NIMS accepts many excellent students from UT and study to obtain their degrees supervised by NIMS researchers.
