TUT started an international research project in collaboration with four universities in the United States and Europe; Massachusetts Institute of Technology (USA), City University of New York (USA), Erlangen- Nuremberg University (Germany) and Stuttgart University (Germany). The goal of this project is the development of novel functional materials for controlling light and electromagnetic waves and making devices from these materials. The project is supported by the Japan Society For the Promotion of Science (JSPS) – “Program for Advancing Strategic International Networks to Accelerate the Circulation of Talented Researchers”.
This JSPS program aims to develop high level young Japanese researchers who will form the nucleus of international networks. These networks will tap into top level talent worldwide, and be made up of promising Japanese research groups and members of top-ranked overseas research institutions. Their goal will be to jointly carry out international research projects..
