COVER STORY
Research Groups in SPSJ
SPSJ has currently 22 Research Groups voluntarily established by our members to enhance research and development in cutting-edge and interdisciplinary fields in polymer science and technology. As many as total 2000 members have joined in the current 22 Research Groups, where over one third of the chairpersons come from industry, attesting the SPSJ's strength in close collaboration between industry and academia. Recognizing their ever-increasing importance in offering state-of-the-art information and opportunities in research and development, the April and May issues feature the activities, achievements, and future perspective of these SPSJ Research Groups.
