Project

Cross-ministerial Strategic Innovation Promotion Program
Structural Materials for Innovation
Materials Integration for Engineering Polymers

Outline

Materials Integration uses all scientific knowledge to help research and development of materials and structures. The system is designed from an engineering point of view. The system also provides information on the effect of service environment on the performance of materials and components. These computer-based estimations help to save research and development time.

JSPS A3 Foresight Program
Modeling and Simulation of Hierarchical and Heterogeneous Flow Systems
with Applications to Materials Science

Outline

Based on an agreement among JSPS, National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) and National Research Foundation of Korea (NRF),

the three countries (A3) support this collaborative program under which their researchers carry out joint activities.

The program works to create world-class research hubs in fields of common interest and special importance within the Asian region.

With A3 research/education institutions at their core, these hubs carry out highly effective combinations of joint research activities,

seminars and researcher exchanges, while fostering new generations of talented young researchers.

After funding under the A3 Foresight Program ends, the core institutions are expected to continue functioning as world-class research hubs within the Asian region.
