Advisory Council


At the RIKEN SPring-8 Center (RSC), we have established an Advisory Council to act as an international consulting board to the Center Director. The Council comprises academic experts and top scientists from Japan and overseas who are working at the cutting edge of their field. The Advisory Council performs a comprehensive review of the management, research plans, research results, and other issues about the RSC. We hope to improve our research even further by using this independent guidance and assistance.
