Resuming Joint Research Activities at ISSP (as from July 13, 2020)

On July 13, 2020, the University of Tokyo eased its activity restriction level to Level 0.5. In line with this decision, the Institute for Solid State Physics of the University of Tokyo (ISSP) has restarted the Joint Research Activity program. Please note, however, as we continue the utmost effort in preventing COVID-19 infectious diseases, we request every visiting joint researcher contact a person in charge of equipment and machines and a host professor in advance, and then please follow the rules below.

  • Check your physical condition for the past two weeks and immediately before you visit ISSP
  • Wear a mask
  • Sanitize your hands with alcohol-based sanitizer before entering into a lab or a room.
  • Submit the checklist paper to the Kyodo Riyou Gakari (Joint Research Section).
    Checklist

If you have been accepted but have not yet executed the Joint Research Activities for the first semester, you can extend the activity until December 31, 2020, if a host professor agrees (no additional review is required). If it is not possible to execute before the year-end 2020, it’s fine to postpone to the second semester (from January 1 to March 31, 2021) at the discretion of an ISSP host professor (no additional review is required). If your activity is to execute after October 1, 2020, please get approvals from your supervisor.

* We are sorry, Kashiwa Guesthouse is still closed for the time being. If you need accommodation, please use nearby hotels and accommodations.

Considering the current situation in the greater Tokyo area, we will continue to operate under the University of Tokyo activity restrictions level 1 for the time being. Then, in principle, we’ll continue to suspend Joint Research Activities with visitors from outside Kashiwa campus.
