Research Organization Structure
The establishment of the Institute for Multidisciplinary Sciences (IMS) in April 2023 also represented a new start for the IAS. To drive world-class research in cutting-edge research fields, the IAS has adopted a structure that comprises two academic research centers – the Quantum Information Research Center and the Advanced Chemical Energy Research Center – and four research units led by outstanding researchers: Information and Physical Security, Cell-based Bioassay, High Efficiency Electrical Energy Conversion, and Unconventional Magnonics. The aim is for the research results generated by these research units and research centers, together with those generated by the IMS, to contribute toward the building of new social and economic systems, toward the fostering of innovation, and toward the development of science and technology.

Research Support System
The IAS and the IMS bring together international researchers in a wide range of fields from both within and outside Japan to undertake high-level research projects. Dedicated research strategy planning managers have been assigned to realize focused support not only for the putting in place of a leading-edge research environment, external funding management, and research outreach activities (including research PR and science communication), but also for the building of a researcher network that links together the researchers at the IAS and the IMS across the boundaries of their respective research fields.
