RIKEN at a Glance


We’ve just gotten our order of RIKEN at a Glance¬†booklets back from the printers, and they look fantastic. Both the content and the design were done completely in-house by the It Ain’t Magic crew (aka us, aka the Global Communications Team). So, we had a lot more flexibility and could make adjustments to the text¬†and the layout¬†much more quickly and much more often.¬†In previous years, our annual report was more business-like and was organized by research center.

This year we have broken away from that that format. Instead of focusing on each¬†research center separately, we decided to focus on topics like regenerative medicine, diseases, and plant science,¬†integrating research from multiple centers, and emphasizing the positive impact RIKEN has on society. We think this is a better way to show how all the¬†centers are working towards the same goals.¬†We put a lot of effort into it this year, and it’s nice to see that the final product looks the way we had hoped.

Inside, you can find:

  • An interview with Rita Colwell, former directer of the United States National Science Foundation and current Chair of the RIKEN Advisory Council
  • Recent¬†scientific achievements and research results
  • An introduction to life at RIKEN
  • Profiles of each research center
  • A cute cartoon of President Matsumoto
  • Cool images
