Open Laboratory Project

This project was promoted under the Special Coordination Fund for Science and Technology, Strategic Research Center "Open Laboratory of Advanced Science and Technology for Humans and Society" Plan (August, 2001- March, 2006).

The Open Laboratory Project is an attempt to transform RCAST's former division-based organization into a new system with which to to promote further its four principles: mobility, interdisciplinarity, internationality, and openness. RCAST will change its organization principally based on the Open Laboratory to enhance its interaction with society. We will invite creative researchers from all over the world for a limited term, so that they will be engaged in such cutting-edge research subjects as environmental problems, social impact of information technology, barrier-free, and knowledge management.
