The new research project of KOSEN (NIT:National Institute of Technology, Japan), GEAR 5.0 has started on April 30.
I assumed the UNIT (The core research center for materials science) leader for the big nation-wide KOSEN research project. We aim to implement the achievements of the collaborations with industries to our societies. Please join us for our research activities!

全国高専の研究プロジェクトが本年4月30日から始まりました。二つのユニット(バーチャル研究センター)が開設されています。 私は鈴鹿高専を中核拠点とするマテリアルサイエンスのユニットリーダーに就任しています。産学連携で先端材料技術の社会実装を目指します。皆様の絶大なるご支援をお願いいたします。

All of the following three Springer books with Prof. Dana M. Barry in Clarkson University, the USA, have been sold well. And in addition, we are very proud that these three books have been mentioned as good text books in the world. Thank you, all, to take interests on ours, to download our these Springer books and also to evaluate them very highly!
#1: "Corrosion Control and Surface Finishing - Environmentally Friendly Approaches" edited by H.Kanematsu & D.M.Barry
#2:"Biofilm and Materials Science" ed. by Hideyuki Kanematsu & Dana M. Barry. (Springer, NY, the USA)
#3:"STEM and ICT Education in Intelligent Environments (Intelligent Systems Reference Library)" Hideyuki Kanematsu & Dana M. Barry Ed., Springer, Heidelberg, Germany

Now we are working on a new Biofilm book by Springer Nature. We have the plan to publish it next year (2020).
