A new WPI research center at Hiroshima University - prospects and missions

The Japan Society for the Promotion of Science has announced on Oct 13 that Hiroshima University was selected to host a new research center funded by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology within the framework, called WPI (The World Premier International Research Center Initiative). The new center, International Institute for Sustainability with Knotted Chiral Meta Matter, will introduce the paradigm to cross- pollinate the knowledge of chirality and topology across disciplines and scales. I will present a brief overview of the WPI center's missions and prospects.
