Greeting from the Director

Nagoya Institute of Technology introduced the, “Improvement of research environment for young researchers,” project which was financed by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology.  NITech established the Center for Innovative Young Researchers and introduced a tenure-track system. NITech has attracted young and innovative researchers from all over the world and introduced 18 researchers to the tenure-track system. These special assistant teachers concentrate on conducting their creative research independently and achieve their great results, and 14 of them have acquired tenure degree by April 2016.

 Research coordinators are available in the institute who mentor and support the young researchers. TT researchers organize their laboratories by themselves and conduct research based on their research proposals, publishing articles of a global standard and obtaining external research funds. Additionally, they may cooperate with professors in our organizations. They develop their researched at international level, haulage our leading interdisciplinary field, and became human resources lead to the creation of innovation and pioneer new research field. Their achievements are strictly evaluated by Assessment Committee constituted of experts from both within and outside of NITech. It is possible for researchers to achieve a wide range of goals including obtaining regular positions in our institute after the completion of their term or working for various international organizations based on industrial and international organizations.

  While NITech has introduced the Program to Disseminate Tenure Tracking System (Organizational selection type and Individual selection type) since 2013, we have been acting as the center fostering young human resources which play role cultivating and evaluating all newly hired assistant professors since January 2015, and 22 assistant professors belong to the center as of April 2016.


We would like to call for your understanding and cooperation to promote the educational programs in our center.
