Materials Innovation Strategy Symposium 2023


The Scope of MatISS 2023:


As it has been pointed out that decline of Japanese competitiveness in materials science and industry, the Materials Innovation Strategy has been proposed, in which the importance of data-driven materials development is increasing. The MEXT aims to establish a Materials DX platform by developing and coordinating three initiatives: creating, accumulating, and utilizing materials data, in order to link them with each other.

As part of the initiative to create materials data, a nationwide network of shared facilities that has been cultivated through the nanotechnology platform is being utilized. Currently, 25 universities and research institutes are participating in the collection and structuring of materials data through shred facility usage (Advanced Research Infrastructure for Materials and Nanotechnology: ARIM). The collected material data is managed and operated at the Data Innovation Center established at the National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS), and they are advancing a data strategy that leverages the strengths of the Materials Research Institute (Materials Data Platform). Furthermore, they are advancing a comprehensive materials research project that seamlessly integrates data generation, data integration and management, and data utilization, making effective use of the accumulated material data (Data generation and utilization materials Research and development projects: DxMT).

Based on the activities of these three projects, this symposium will provide an overview of the role of strengthening materials innovation capabilities in realizing Society 5.0, realizing carbon neutrality, and realizing a wellbeing society
