International Visitor Research Center

A new institution which is open to researchers around the world, where people from diverse disciplines can gather, learn and create.

The Tohoku Forum for Creativity

The Tohoku Forum for Creativity (TFC) is the first international visitor research center in Japan. It was created in order to facilitate international collaboration between academics at Tohoku University and world-class researchers around the world.

The central aims of the TFC are to promote pioneering interdisciplinary research, to strengthen academic programs, and to foster the development of young researchers.

In order to achieve these aims, the TFC will host three thematic programs each year, with each individual program focusing on an important problem which humanity faces today. Each thematic program will consist of a number of conferences and workshops all related to the central theme, and through intensive focused discussion we aim to develop innovative ideas and form new research networks.

For more information about the TFC, including how to apply to organize a thematic program, please visit the website www.tfc.tohoku.ac.jp.
