Facilitating interdisciplinary exchange between the world’s top researchers
About the Tokyo Tech World Research Hub Initiative (WRHI)

As part of our goal to become one of the world’s top 10 research universities through cutting-edge research and innovative creation, we at the Tokyo Institute of Technology are currently undergoing comprehensive reform. This reform includes the establishment of the Institute of Innovative Research (IIR), which comprises leading laboratories and research centers, as well as enhancing our attractive research environment for researchers from around the world and our own brightest students. The Tokyo Tech World Research Hub Initiative (WRHI) was established as part of the IIR and is the driving force behind our aspiration to both achieve interdisciplinary exchange between the world’s top researchers and act as a center for groundbreaking research.

The WRHI is currently actively recruiting researchers both domestically and from abroad to facilitate collaboration with academics at our university and to foster exchange that transcends traditional disciplinary boundaries.
