What is the Industry-Academia-Government Collaboration Membership System?
The universe, energy, matter, people, and life These research themes generally constitute a grand research field called "natural science research". The National Institute of Natural Sciences (NINS) is a university joint research institute consisting of five research institutes and four centers that are at the forefront of natural science research. While promoting international and cutting-edge research, we provide a place for joint use and research for researchers nationwide.
NINS has launched the "Industry-Academia-Government Collaboration Membership System" with the aim of widely returning intellectual property such as our cutting-edge research results and research technologies to society and contributing to the development of industry and culture around the world. We hope that this system will facilitate co-creation between us researchers and the industry, and will be the cornerstone of the creation of new technologies in the future.
