The Global Station for Soft Matter of the Global Institution for Collaborative Research and Education (GI-CoRE) 2016-2020

Since its establishment in April 2016 in Faculty of Advanced Life Science, the Global Station for Soft Matter of the Global Institution for Collaborative Research and Education (GSS-GI-CoRE) has operated as an organization under the direct control of the President of Hokkaido University. In 2018, The Graduate School of Life Science a has formally established the Division of Soft Matte which is a development stemming from GSS-GI-CoRE. The Division of Soft Matter has promoted persistent developments of young researchers as the first division of Soft Matter in Japan. The GSS received a S evaluation, which is the highest evaluation, at the external evaluation committee in 2020. (Please refer to archive page for past GSS activities.)
