Advanced Science Research Center

Brief History

The center, originally named Frontier Research Center, was established in 1998 as a core facility to promote the Frontier Research Project supported by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology. This project, carried out for a period of 10 years, facilitated various lines of research and interdisciplinary interaction in this institution. In recognition of its scientific achievement, a new project was set by the Ministry in 2008, and the center was renamed Advanced Science Research Center.
