Research Projects

We carry out both basic and applied research in chemistry. The following sections introduce our major research projects:

Research and Education Funding

 Representative from ICR : AOYAMA, Takashi          Term : 2022-2027

Institute for Chemical Research (ICR) has been functioning since 2010 as a “Joint Usage/Research Center (JURC)” approved by MEXT. On the basis of frontier research and extensive domestic/ international collaboration conducted at ICR, the JURC further developed cooperative research and cultivate young researchers in chemistry-oriented fields. In 2018, ICR was certified by MEXT as an “International Joint Usage/Research Center (IJURC)” based on its highly ranked achievements and remarkable international activities. Now ICR has started a second six-year term of IJURC with 136 domestic research subjects and 63 international collaborations in FY2022. For further details, click here.
