Nara Institute of Science and Technology Division for Research Strategy



In 2010, the Research Center for Advanced Science and Technology was reorganized as the Center for Frontier Science and Technology , aiming to execute comprehensive investigation and planning on research strategy and systematic supports for interdisciplinary research activities. Five years later, it was reorganized again into the Division for Research Strategy. The division surveys research trends in advanced science and technology in and outside of Japan, while exploring new research fields that anticipate next-generation science and technology. Through these endeavors, the Institute for Research Initiatives aims to lead NAIST toward becoming globally recognized research university. We appreciate your continued support and encouragement.
