The policies and trends of Science, Technology and Innovation in Japan.
Science and Technology Advisor to the Minister for Foreign Affairs of Japan
I have been working for over 40 years in the fields of materials science especially fracture mechanics and nondestructive testing of metal, ceramics and composite materials. Currently, I am serving as the President of the “Innovative Structural Materials Association” by METI, which promotes R&D mainly for materials used in automobiles. Until March 2019, I had been serving as the Program Director of a large national research project on Structural Materials (SIP program) funded by the Cabinet Office of Japan, which promotes R&D mainly for materials used in aircrafts. In addition to my research activities, I have been appointed to the first Science and Technology Advisor to the Minister for Foreign Affairs of Japan since September 2015 to bridge science and diplomacy.
At this seminar, I will introduce the policies and trends of Science, Technology and Innovation in Japan. My talk also covers the overview of “Structural Materials for Innovation” and the introduction of my activities on Science and Technology Diplomacy as a Science and Technology Advisor to the Minister for Foreign Affairs of Japan.
