ASM International has formed a collaboration with the Japanese Institute of Metals and Materials (JIM) to exchange materials science knowledge and ideas.

ASM says that JIM is an academic society that promotes the advancement of theory, science, and industrial processes with regards to metals and other materials. As part of this collaboration between the two societies, JIM members will be provided with various benefits of ASM membership, the organizations note.

Plans are to encourage ASM and JIM students and young researchers to attend each society’s respective annual events: ASM’s International Materials Applications and Technologies (IMAT) fall meeting and JIM’s annual spring meeting.

We are looking forward to providing materials information globally and are proud to have JIM as our partner in this collaboration,’ said Ryan Milosh, sales and marketing officer at ASM.
