MEGA Evolution of Materials

NIMS WEEK is an annual event that introduces the latest academic achievements of NIMS and the newest technologies expected to be of practical use.
This year, experience NIMS’s “now” with the following four programs.

Highlights

The highlights this year are the NIMS Award Winning Lectures by researchers leading data-driven material development, the innovative research exhibition, and individual consultations connecting companies and researchers. In addition, “NIMS Open House” will make available over 80 laboratories and facilities.
As a new project, we will introduce the latest trend in materials prediction research using open data as the STAM 20th anniversary, an open access journal for materials science.

Don’t miss the chance to see this big event and the evolution of world-changing materials.

STAM 20th Anniversary Symposium Open Science and Materials Research Sanjo Conference Hall, The University of Tokyo

The symposium commemorates the 20th anniversary of STAM, an open access journal for materials science. The editors will describe STAM’s approach towards creating a data-driven journal and global trends in materials development using open data.

Kazuhito Hashimoto President

Greetings from the President

On October 1st, 2016, the National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS) made a new start as a designated national research and development institute, and is now in its fourth year. Japan has traditionally has taken a leading position in the field of materials science and nanotechnology in the world. As a core institute, leading an innovation national system in this field, NIMS is expected to contribute to strengthen Japan’s industrial competitiveness, including human resource development, aiming at the realization of Society 5.0 (Super Smart Society), listed in the 5th Science and Technology Basic Plan.

This year, the fifth week of October is called “NIMS WEEK”. On the first day, we open our research facilities at once at NIMS, Tsukuba, and many programs such as lab tours and lectures for companies and university students are planned. During the next two days, NIMS Award Ceremony, Academic Symposium on the theme of “Data-Driven Materials Development”, and a Showcase to present the latest research results of NIMS will be held at Tokyo International Forum. Additionally, this year we will hold a Symposium to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the launch of Science and Technology of Advanced Materials (STAM), an open access journal for materials science co-published by NIMS.

Through this NIMS WEEK, I would like you to see the front line of evolving materials research.

Kazuhito Hashimoto
President
National Institute for Materials Science
