Content of research

ISIR has promoted international collaborations with foreign universities/institutions based on the agreements on the academic exchange programs. To further promote and to continuously support such international collaborations, International Collaborative Research Center was founded in April 2009. The center consists of several collaborative laboratories, which are established between ISIR and the foreign universities/institutions. Currently, ten collaborative laboratories are working. Researchers and students who belong to the collaborative research projects stay at a collaborative laboratory on each side and perform the collaborative research.
