Research Communications

Using numerous media channels, including the official Tokyo Tech website, we strive for broad dissemination of our researchers' discoveries. In collaboration with the Office of Public Engagement, our activities include preparing research press releases, responding to inquiries from the media, publishing Tokyo Tech web content and other materials, and outreach efforts.

Press Releases

URAs work closely with the Public Relations Section of the Office of Public Engagement to help generate media coverage of our researchers' achievements. Press releases can be prepared for the following.

  • Research findings accepted for publication in peer-reviewed journals
    (To ensure that the press release gets published at the same time as your paper, please contact us in advance.)
  • Research findings presented at major academic conferences
  • Other research activities that may attract media interest
