Organization

The Center’s research organization is operated and maintained by a small decision-making body, which simplifies implementing the Center Director’s vision into action. The Center’s support and administrative organizations consist mainly of components that offer help and support for non-domestic researchers at the Center to the extent that the Center deserves the title “international research center.”

The Center has five research groups directed by the Center Director, and each of the five research groups is headed by a group leader and a group sub-leader. The Center Management Committee is comprised of the Center Director, the Administrative Director, and the leaders of the five research groups of the Center, and it is responsible for operating and managing the Center in accordance with the Center Director’s decisions on research directions.
