In principle, GIMRT distinguishes from more usage of experimental facilities, but rather conducts joint research projects performed in the divisions of IMR in order to address researches in materials science fields.
Collaborative research is opened for academic-staff members of universities and research institutions sponsored by various governmental agencies, mainly the Ministry of Education, Science and Culture, as well as private organizations.
