AIST’s Innovation School aims to train human resources able to contribute to innovation. To address increasingly complicated social issues, we need to develop innovative technologies by combining the ideas and technologies of AIST and external organizations. For this we need personnel who can play a central role in collaboration. AIST actively accepts postdoctoral researchers and graduate students, and provides lectures and training to learn and develop 3 skills: “research skills” that are learned through scientific and technological knowledge in specific areas of expertise, “cooperation skills” acquired through working with experts in different fields, and “resourcefulness” nurtured through communication, the ability to think, and develop one’s own career.
