Tokyo Institute of Technology announced on April 2016, 4 that it has established the "Science and Technology Creation Research Institute" with about 1 researchers to consolidate its research system and further strengthen its research capabilities.
The "Science and Technology Creation Research Institute" will reorganize the organizations involved in current research, establish research institutes and research centers to carry out new missions, and flexibly promote cutting-edge research with small teams. Installed 10 "Research Units". The "research unit" is a mechanism for outstanding leaders to greatly nurture "pointed" research.
At Tokyo Institute of Technology, there are three laboratories of individual faculty members, research institutes and research centers that conduct systematic research based on missions, and research center organizations that conduct world-class research in specific fields based on large-scale government funding. We have proceeded with two systems.However, in response to the increasingly complex demands of society and the increasing number of issues that span different fields, it has become necessary to build a more flexible research system that speedily tackles new fields and integrated fields. We have introduced a system and mechanism that allows researchers of different specialties, including foreign faculty members, to form a team for research by collaborating and allocating researchers more flexibly and flexibly.Through this reform, in addition to promoting basic research, we aim to strengthen research that will lead to the solution of future industrial seeds and social issues.
