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.
Tokyo Tech posted a 5-minute video on YouTube. Please watch and share it.
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.
Press releases can be issued in Japanese to be distributed to the domestic media.
Press releases can also be issued in English to be distributed to the overseas media.
In addition to press releases, briefings and other press events can be held to aid comprehension by the media.
Assistance is also available regarding media inquiries. Researchers are at liberty to accept interviews concerning their areas of expertise provided they notify the Public Relations Section. However, If the topic of an interview requires that you speak on behalf of the Insitute (such as questions about the management of the Institute) or on other matters outside of your expertise, please be sure to consult the Public Relations Section beforehand.
The Institute's website includes sections that feature research-related information. Researchers are encouraged to submit articles to increase the impact of their work.
Research findings for which a press release has been issued appear in this section of the home page.
Other research-related news, for which a press release has not been issued, appears in this section of the home page.
Featured articles appear at the top of the home page in a slideshow of images. Highlights include stories about groundbreaking discoveries and pieces on researchers, such as the Faces: Tokyo Tech Researchers series.
The Institute issues regular publications that provide insight into its research activities. Consult the Public Relations Section for requests to include information in these publications.
Departments and laboratories carrying out public outreach activities can promote their events on the Tokyo Tech website.
Press releases can also be issued for events that are open to the media and have the potential to attract media attention.
