Abstract : The next generation's industrial key technology R&D system (the System), as a creative measure by the Agency of Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), MITI, for establishing the foundation for Japan's future industries and for nurturing independent technologies, is a unique system that strictly sets its research objectives on technical development in order to secure the foundation for common, high technological standards. Both its concept and timing could not have been more appropriate, and speaking from the industrial community, I was compelled to sincerely express my respect and support to the System. The "fine ceramics R&D" project, being a part of the System and belonging to the field of new materials, has targeted the establishment of industrial structural materials that would open a new horizon which could not have been reached with existing materials, in particular with their heat resistance, corrosion resistance and abrasion resistance.
