NIMS Signs Comprehensive Collaborative Agreement with National Taiwan University

The National Institute for Materials Science in Japan has concluded a Comprehensive Collaborative Agreement (a sister institute agreement) with National Taiwan University (NTU) in Republic of China (Taiwan).

NTU’s institutional predecessor was Taihoku Imperial University, founded in 1928, and it is one of the most prestigious universities in Taiwan. Dr. Li Yuan-che, Nobel Prize Laureate of Chemistry in 1986 is alumnus of the university. Now, the university has 11 colleges, with 54 departments and 103 graduate institutes, plus four university-level research centers. The total number of students is over 33,000, including 15,000 graduate students, almost equal to the number of undergraduates, indicating a strong research university.

This agreement will not only reinforce the existing collaborations between NTU and NIMS but also lead to more extensive collaboration and exchange of researchers.
