I would like to contribute to improve our world as much as possible through research. From the experiences, I am well aware that it is necessary to have a continuous effort and a definite determination to never give up, in order to improve the world even a little. I Designed the Center with such a philosophy and do my level best.
In the future to come, I sense that science and technology will be increasingly required to pass on its output to society and the Center takes such a demand seriously. I hope that our research results benefit the society and contribute to the creation of a better future. I also hope that the activities of the Center help create a new carbon nanotube industry originating in Japan and become a model case for future science and technology development.
