What is academic research?

Academic research is the pursuit of factual clarification and fundamental principles that explain all phenomena occurring in nature, humanity and society. It is an activity of intellectual creation conducted with free thought inspired by intellectual curiosity, and a spirit of inquiry. Since ancient times, whether useful or not, human beings have continued to question, “What’s this?” and “Why is that?” We have built up a “knowledge system” unique to man among living things.

What is an Inter-University Research Institute?

The National Institutes of Natural Sciences (NINS) consists of five inter-university research institutes: the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan (NAOJ), the National Institute for Fusion Science (NIFS), the National Institute for Basic Biology (NIBB), the National Institute for Physiological Sciences (NIPS), and the Institute for Molecular Science (IMS). In addition to playing a leading role in its respective research field, each institute has a collaborative relationship with NINS with the common goal of creating an interdisciplinary and international research base.
