We promote a seminal research for creation of human life support system as “Humanophilic Innovation Project”. In this approach, we try to create novel interdisciplinary researches integrating the fields of material, biological and information science, and to develop researchers and engineers for solving to complicated problems in the world and the future. These achievements will be applied to develop new support systems for social activities such as agriculture and nursing care in order to address the needs of a low birth rate and an aging population.
