Research Outline

The management group aims to lead the research program by planning research policy, managing research projects, and working on assessment and publicity of the outcome. This group regularly holds steering committee meetings to determine research policy. At the end of each fiscal year, this group plans to have annual meetings to evaluate the progress of all research projects and enhance mutual collaboration among the researchers. To promote internationalization of the program, the group holds international workshops/symposia occasionally. With regard to outreach activities, the group organizes public symposia, issues newsletters, and updates the website.
