Outreach Programs

 ICR outreach programs were developed in 1993 to bring the excitement and joy of chemistry to the public. Through public lectures, we have a chance to interact and collaborate with local communities.

Program Calendar

Public Lectures

We offer public lectures on the day of “Open Campus in Uji”, providing the public an opportunity to learn about exciting current research at the institute. We gain a good reputation for Q&A session where the audience get a chance to ask questions directly to the professors.


ICR Annual Symposium

Young scientists and graduate students at ICR deliver oral and poster presentations, showing their work in progress. We grant an award called “ICR Award for Young Scientists” and “ICR Award for Graduate Students” to those who have presented outstanding studies.
