Officially, the Global COE program is determined to produce exceptional research and researchers. We define this as not only making high impact discoveries and graduating internationally recruited students but also as a change in how research is done. Our goal is to make the radical banal by continuously combining seemingly unrelated scientific fields to foster a research environment and culture that makes inter-disciplinary research and imagination a daily activity. This will require us to view science not as a logical, pedantic process, but more as an expressive art. Along with using objective standards to achieve successful science, we seek to develop an environment where people feel their professional conversations and studies are both stimulating and, believe it or not, fun.
