Inorganic Functional Materials Research Institute has been closed on March 31, 2020 due to organizational restructuring. From April 2020, we would conduct innovative research in each of the three institutes, such as Innovative Functional Materials Research Institute, Multi-Material Research Institute, Nanomaterials Research Institute.

Inorganic Functional Materials Research Institute (IFMRI) focuses on providing innovative high-technology solutions from materials, process design to mass production level to meet the critical needs from industry.

IFMRI's targeting topics aims to offer industrial components with higher quality and reliability, which are essential for realizing various new functional devices, modules and multicomponent bulk products, applicable to field of energy, environmental and health-care. The research subjects conducted in the institute are based on the development of advanced inorganic materials such as ceramics and metals, as well as the new functional advanced components.

IFMRI consists of 8 research groups with about 60 researchers, and is located at AIST Chubu and Kansai Centers. IFMRI continues to build strong relationships with industry and will demonstrate the usefulness of these innovative technologies toward commercialization.
