Making Concepts Real Materials

About the Element Strategy Initiative

Objectives of the symposium

The Element Strategy Initiative: To Form Core Research Centers, which was launched in October 2012 and will continue for an expected period of 10 years, has an unprecedented program design in which centers for research will be created through the integration of experimentation, measurement and computation. The symposium will raise a wide variety of elements strategy issues, focusing on the centers’ activities, and introducing some of the research highlights obtained thus far. The symposium also provides a forum aimed at the examination and realization of the best ways in which to create and continue research promotion systems through industry, government and academia collaborations and the fusion of diverse fields, as well as the condition of the materials research efforts that will become national basic technologies, in anticipation of their practical implementation in society.
