What is AIST ?The National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) was established in 2001 as one of the Japan’s largest public research institutions. The 15 national research institutes and the Weights and Measures Training Institute under the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry that had functioned to strengthen Japan’s industrial competitiveness, secure resources, and as the pivot of weights and measures since the Meiji era were brought together as one, and the new entity was inaugurated as an independent administrative corporation.AIST takes an integrated approach spanning fundamental research through practical research with the aim of “realizing a sustainable society.” Currently, its primary two missions are “solving 21st Century issues” and “strengthening the open innovation hub function.” AIST is also promoting “green technology to realize an abundant and environmentally friendly society” and “life technology to realize healthy and safe lifestyles.”Through the mission of “strengthening the open innovation hub function,” AIST strives to directly link R&D with innovation, offer access to its research facilities to the industrial sector, and contribute to the acceleration of innovation by industry and academic societies. AIST is also promoting efforts to respond to the situation the world finds itself in today. For example, the Fukushima Renewable Energy Institute was established in fiscal 2013 to conduct international R&D and evaluation tests. In this manner, AIST is attaching importance to links with society.In addition, R&D that forms the basis of everyday life is an important aspect of AIST’s work. This includes measurement standards and calibration for scales, as well as underground resources surveys and geological surveys to investigate the state of the earth’s surface. At AIST, we carry out basic research based on science and technology through to full research that generates research findings for the industrial sector. Up to now and in the future, we have and will carry out our daily activities in order that research findings can be used in everyday life.What is AIST ?The National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) was established in 2001 as one of the Japan’s largest public research institutions.
