(Director, Aichi Synchrotron Radiation Center, Aichi Science and Technology Foundation)


This area focuses on technologically challenging targets to secure resources and food, aiming to realize a sustainable society in response to a super ageing and declining population. We aim to support a society of health and longevity by applying advanced technologies, developing social infrastructure for sustainable urban and local communities, and effectively and efficiently extending life-cycles of infrastructure. This will improve manufacturing and kotozukuri (story creation) competitiveness, preserve biodiversity, and so on. Research also includes marine technologies that contribute to the sustainable development and utilization of the ocean.
