Nara Institute of Science and Technology Division for Research Strategy


International Public Relations

The Division for Research Strategy promotes international public relations by strengthening the dissemination of research outcomes from NAIST. The division creates news articles about research outcomes and publishes them on EurekAlert!, an online news service provided by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), as well as on the NAIST’s website. In addition, the division publishes the NAIST Research Highlights, which showcases the latest research topics and achievements of NAIST.
