The common goal of humankind is to realize a society in which every person can enjoy a comfortable life. Science and technology can lead the way to such a society. The mission entrusted to AIST and its staff, as members of the scientific community, is to develop science and technology that complements society and the environment.

We, the staff members of AIST, recognize our mission and responsibility to society. We work towards the realization of such a society through research and development in industrial science and technology.

Declaration of AIST Gender Equality

We believe
that research becomes more fruitful and beneficial to the society when
diversity is introduced in the work environment.

We organize AIST as an institute
where an individual can display his/her own unique abilities.

Therefore, in addition to the improvement of the management system,
we promote the participation of AIST staff, especially female researchers,
in the science field along with their involvement in various social activities.
