How to get there


The Cross-ministerial Strategic Innovation Promotion Program (SIP) is a national project for science, technology and innovation, spearheaded by the Council for Science, Technology and Innovation (CSTI) as it exercises its headquarters function to accomplish its role in leading science, technology and innovation beyond the framework of government ministries and traditional disciplines. The SIP has identified 11 subjects that will address the most important social problems facing Japan, as well as contribute to the resurgence of the Japanese economy.

“Structural Materials for Innovation (SM4I)” is one of the major subjects in the SIP and its goal is to develop materials that are strong, light and heat-resistant, leading to innovation in aviation and power generation industries. The implementation period is for 5 years, FY2014 – FY2018 and the total budget is 19 billion JPY. Approximately 900 researchers have participated in our project.

Our project is coming to an end in this financial year so that we would like to hold this symposium in order to introduce the SIP program globally and to show the accomplishments of our research and development. The principal investigators in our project will make presentations. We hope to have as many participants as possible, especially those who are interested in materials for components of aircraft engines and airframes.
