Design & Engineering by Joint Inverse Innovation
for Materials Architecture (DEJI2MA)

Six university research institutes (Institute of Materials and Systems for Sustainability, Nagoya University; Joining and Welding Research Institute, Osaka University; Institute for Materials Research, Tohoku University; Laboratory for Materials and Structures, Tokyo Institute of Technology; Research Organization for Nano & Life Innovation, Waseda University; Institute of Biomaterials and Bioengineering, Tokyo Medical and Dental University) are collaborating to organize a new academic cross-cutting research center of excellence that will serve as a new foundation for addressing the needs of society. More specifically, an interdisciplinary research center of excellence, “multi-Dejima”, that integrates research on various fields including metals, ceramics, biomaterials, and electronics, is being organized to transcend the boundaries between universities to solve issues in society and enterprises and advance technical innovation through R&D activities.

In addition, we are also striving to establish a shared stage for international exchange, the collaboration between industries and universities, and the fostering of human resources with highly advanced skills using multi-Dejima as the foundation.
