As we build on our understanding in 2021, I call on all members of the community not only to adapt to the new normal, but to look beyond these times of uncertainty and into a better future. By continuing to respect diversity, inclusion, and the voices and ideas of the public, we can make 2021 a year of new creation, impact, and value. applications from an engineering standpoint.
The construction of Hisao & Hiroko Taki Plazaouter (Taki Plaza), a 4,900-square-meter student exchange hub in the heart of Ookayama Campus, has finished approximately four years after the concept was born.
In the future, how will human and information networks expand? Sekai Kobayashi is the owner of Mirai Shokudo, an eatery with twelve counter seats in Jinbocho, a neighborhood near Tokyo Station.

With the advent of COVID-19, humanity is seeing various shifts in society that are becoming the "new normal". In response, Tokyo Tech has created the New Normal Research Mapouter, introducing Tokyo Tech research that will contribute to COVID-19 recovery and beyond.
The idea that mass extinctions allow many new types of species to evolve is a central concept in evolution, but a new study using artificial intelligence to examine the fossil record finds this is rarely true, and there must be another explanation.
Scientists report that the metal ruthenium, supported with lanthanide oxyhydrides, can efficiently catalyze the synthesis of ammonia at a much lower temperature than the traditional approach.
Scientists synthesized a novel material that displays unique thermal expansion properties. The method used by the scientists enables the production of a unique crystalline oxide containing zirconium, sulfur, and phosphorus, that exhibits two distinct mechanisms of negative thermal expansion.
Scientists provide deeper insights into neural thirst control. Their study indicates that cholecystokinin-mediated water-intake suppression is controlled by two neuronal 'thirst-suppressing' sub-populations in the subfornical organ in the brain.
