A center that promotes research on structural materials for the national resilience and carbon neutrality through a collaboration with industry, academia, and government

2023.04.01 Update
Research Center for Structural Materials (RCSM) promotes technological development of structural materials that contribute to the national resilience and carbon neutrality. Aiming to create innovative material seeds and build the world's most advanced evaluation and analysis technology, we will strengthen our role as a "basic research institute for industry." In addition, as a hub function for industry-academia-government collaboration, it promotes sharing of cutting-edge facilities, gathering of expertise, standardization, and international information exchange, and contributes to global and national issues such as SDCs.
