Based on the former successes of cooperative research projects between two university institutes (FY2005-FY2006) and multi-party alliance projects (Post-Silicon Alliance of FY2007-FY2009, and Nano-Macro Materials, Devices and System Research Alliance of FY2010-FY2015), “Dynamic Alliance for Open Innovation Bridging Human, Environment and Materials”（Five-star Alliance）was started in FY2016 to attempt strategic development of next generation “Materials, Devices, and System” for bridging human, environmental and materials as a cooperative research project with five outstanding university institutes including our ISIR Osaka University, Research Institute for Electronic Science (RIES) of Hokkaido University, Institute of Multidisciplinary Research for Advanced Materials (IMRAM) of Tohoku University, Laboratory for Chemistry and Life Science (CLS), Institute of Innovative Research, Tokyo Institute of Technology, and Institute for Materials Chemistry and Engineering (IMCE) of Kyushu University.
This five-star alliance consists of three research groups covering the research areas of ; “Electronics materials and devices (G1)”, “Environment and energy materials, device and processes (G2)”, and “Biological functions materials, devices and systems (G3)”. Not only within the group but also between groups, various types of multidisciplinary collaborative researches are carried out. In addition, the alliance has strong correlation with the “Network Joint Research Center for Materials and Devices”; these two projects are promoted to the inextricably.
Through the significant cooperative researches as well as under the promotion programs for young scientist and students, the current five-star alliance project aims to realize innovation that links human, environment and materials and devices.
Steering Committee: Prof. K. Nakatani (Director of Operations), Prof. T. Sekino (Chair).
