1. Field of cooperation

"Molecular Technology"

This program promotes joint research projects in the area of "Molecular Technology", a series of technologies that enable us to qualitatively change existing science and technology through purposefully designing and synthesizing molecules and creating the physical, chemical, and biological functions of materials at a molecular level. Three times of call is scheduled from 2014.
