Whatʼ AIMR Supporters? Whatʼ AIMR Supporters?

Aren’t you interested in sciences and technologies? Both sciences and technologies are now part of our everyday life, gradually and steadily making our life more convenient. Smartphone, smart home appliances, vehicle collision avoidance system or advanced medical care… Society which beyond our 10 years ago imagination is now realized.
Recently, we hear a lot about “Science and technology innovation”. Based on sciences and technologies which have been cultivated, further challenge embarking on a nationwide effort is strongly required. Consequently, 10 years later, no need to say that more and more evolved society will come by developing complex “big data” analysis and “artificial intelligence (AI)” utilization.
The basis of such science and technology that have already make present society real or will make 10 years later society real…in fact, the basis is supported by development of “new materials”

We at Advanced Institute for Materials Research Tohoku University (AIMR) are working to develop such epoch-making materials. For the development of new materials, we utilize mathematical approaches, looking the future science and technology by utilization of “big data” and its analytical “AI”. AIMR’s strength combines both a physical and intelligent approach available as a result of an innovative collaboration between materials scientists and mathematicians.
By bringing together all the expertise at AIMR, we endeavor to visualize the development process of new materials using mathematical models to provide an explanation as clearly as possible, and thereby become confident in supplying and recommending materials to the world!! To this end, we are devoting ourselves to research every day.

AIMR Supporters are a group of people who support AIMR’s activities and cheer for us. To enable future research at AIMR to help create reliable materials, it is necessary for us not only to share knowledge of professionals, but also to listen to opinions and requests of those who support us and incorporate their feedback into our research activities in the future. In this way, we intend to conduct further meaningful research.

Anyone who wants to “Support AIMR” can get registered as an AIMR Supporter, regardless of age and profession, an individual, company or organization. No registration fee or annual membership fee is required.

Once you are registered, you will be kept informed of latest research results at AIMR regarding mathematical models obtained and development of new materials, which are written in an easy-to-understand manner, and also receive information on events, such as extension courses that AIMR organizes.

Why don’t you register yourself as an AIMR Supporter and work with AIMR to think what new materials and what society after 10 years?
