Selected as a JSPS’s Core-to-Core program
The Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) selected KMI’s proposal “International research network to reveal dark matter in the universe by multidisciplinary approach in particle and astrophysics” as one of the Core-to-Core programs.
The Core-to-Core program is designed to create top world-class research centers that partner over the long term with other core research institutions around the world in advancing research in leading-edge fields on issues of high international priority.
The KMI’s project — International research network to reveal dark matter in the universe by multidisciplinary approach in particle and astrophysics — starts in FY 2020 and continues until FY 2024 in collaboration with four countries: Japan, Germany, Italy, UK, and Korea. Professor Junji Hisano from KMI joins the project as the coordinater of Japan. The Counterpart core institutions are Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics, National Institute for Nuclear Physics/Padova Division, University of Edinburgh, and Institute for Basic Science. In addition to those core institutes, many researchers from other domestic and foreign institutes are involved in the project. Through the project, KMI will improve the study of the dark universe.
