Industry-University Collaboration

In our Global COE Program (Phase II), we will focus mainly on fundamental sciences, but in order to contribute to society through materials, it will endeavor to respond to industrial needs. To do this, in 2007, we will establish a "Materials Manufacturing Technology" joint research unit (comprised of three chairs, with the participation of Nippon Steel Corporation, Sumitomo Metal Industries, Ltd. and Nisshin Steel Co., Ltd.) as a new organization based on collaborations between industrial material manufacturers and the Division of Materials and Manufacturing Science, targeting practical applications of our successful research outcome.
