Institute for Chemical Reaction Design and Discovery (WPI-ICReDD), Hokkaido University
ICReDD was born out of the realization that the purposeful design of chemical reactions requires cross-sectional collaborations at every step. Working on such a fundamental natural process, quantum-chemical computations, information technology, modern experimental techniques, and the development of advanced materials can no longer be separate fields if we want to achieve significant breakthroughs. Rather, they have to become part of a diverse toolbox for truly integrated research.
Our researchers, therefore, don’t work in separate “fields” or “units”, but come together under one roof, with the expertise of each becoming a resource for the work of the other. We foster a regular, personal exchange across research laboratories on all levels from postdocs to principal investigators and work in shared facilities as well as participate in common activities.
