Collaborative Research provided by IMR
Types of Collaborative Research
IMR performes collaborative research in the following divisions.
Individual Research Laboratories
Joint research project conducted by researchers of IMR and other universities/institutions; Four categories "Research in Priority Areas", "General Research", "Exploratory Research for Young Researchers" and "Work-shop" are prepared.
- a）Research in Priority Areas
Original and leading research of special priority with total budget less than 2 million JPY
- b）General Research
Research that is expected to produce results of collaboration, having the potential to develop into "Research in Priority Areas"
- c）Exploratory Research for Young Researchers
Research in an early stage of development for young researchers (not older than 37 years) with total budget up to 0.3 million JPY
Meeting or forum to discuss latest key data and knowledge mutually on current research topics with total budget less than 2 million JPY
International Research Center for Nuclear Materials Science
Collaborative research projects are carried out with researchers from universities and independent administrative agencies. The studies are on 1) irradiation effects of various nuclear materials utilizing JMTR* (Japan Materials Testing Reactor), experimental fast reactor JOYO, JRR-3 etc. in JAEA (Japan Atomic Energy Agency) at Oarai, Ibaraki Prefecture, and 2) new type of actinide materials, including researches on nuclear fuels and their recycling processes.
* JMTR is planning out of operation for regulation.
Cooperative Research and Development Center for Advanced Materials (CRDAM)
Collaborative research projects are carried out to development of advanced materials, analysis of materials properties, and so on. Collaboration with research divisions of CRDAM and utilization of facilities in CRDAM are widely accepted. Excellent research projects are annually commended..
High Field Laboratory for Superconducting Materials
