Greetings from the Director
CORE RESEARCH CLUSTER
for MATERIALS SCIENCE
The Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) selected Tohoku University as one of the first three Designated National Universities to become an international center of excellence in education and research at the world's highest level, effective from 2017.
At that time, Tohoku University established the Research Innovation System as a major pillar of research, and established four core research centers (Materials Science, Spintronics, Next-Generation Medicine, and Disaster Science) to comprise the Organization for Advanced Studies. The Core Research Cluster for Materials Science (CRCMS) is included as one of them.
The 4th Mid-Term Plan period for the National University Corporation began in FY2022, and our CRCMS has also made a new start. We are promoting this project as a center that can be utilized by people inside and outside the university as a platform for materials science research at Tohoku University.
We will continue to work for the development of materials science, valuing the tradition of "Research First," the philosophy of "Open Doors", and the spirit of "Practice-oriented Research and Education” that have existed since the founding of the university. We deeply appreciate your support and cooperation.
