For the Better Communication with Society

The Public Relations Office (PRO) handles o fficial PR activities of IMR. To inform the public about the IMR’s research outputs and provide intellectual resources for the scientists and engineers inside and outside of IMR, we publish “IMR News,” “KINKEN Research Highlights (KRH),” “IMR Abstracts,” as well as pamphlets for the visitors. We also manage the IMR’s website with timely posts on press releases, awards, events, and other news. In addition, we engage in other public outreach activities, which have become increasingly important in recent years. We organize and host “KINKEN Open House (held every other year)“ that attracts thousands of people. The event provides a place of interaction between local residents— mainly elementary school students—and researchers to communicate the appeal of science. For middle school and high school students, we arrange laboratory tours and talk sessions with IMR students throughout the year to help them explore future career choices. Going beyond simply disseminating information, the PRO thus aims to make educational and social contributions through effective communication with the public.
