Purpose of establishment:
1 To conduct basic research and development
in terms of materials science
2 To promote distribution of research outcomes
and their utilization
3 To open facilities and equipment to researchers
all over the world
4 To trian and educate researchers and technicians
Business overview:
NRIM and NIRIM have been the leading research centers
in the fields of metals and inorganic materials,
Also both have been appointed to carry out the
COE Project(the Center of Excellence Development Program).
Now,becoming one organization will enable us to have
opportunity to go further into innovative fields such as
We look at nation's security from the viewpoint of
materials research.
Other materials,such as organic materials,will be looked
into for the future.
