Synthesiology - English edition Vol. 9 No. 2, Sep. 2016Edited by Synthesiology Editorial BoardPublished by National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST)Aim of Synthesiology― Utilizing the fruits of research for social prosperity ―There is a wide gap between scientific achievement and its utilization by society. The history of modern science is replete with results that have taken life-times to reach fruition. This disparity has been called the valley of death, or the nightmare stage. Bridging this difference requires scientists and engineers who understand the potential value to society of their achievements. Despite many previous attempts, a systematic dissemination of the links between scientific achievement and social wealth has not yet been realized. The unique aim of the journal Synthesiology is its focus on the utilization of knowledge for the creation of social wealth, as distinct from the accumulated facts on which that wealth is engendered. Each published paper identifies and integrates component technologies that create value to society. The methods employed and the steps taken toward implementation are also presented.Editor in Chief: T. KANAYAMASenior Executive Editor: N. YUMOTO, H.
