Welcome to NSRI; Nippon Steel Research Institute

Nippon Steel Research Institute is a general think tank of Nippon Steel Group. We are ready to support your business strategy with our wide range of knowledge...from science technology to economic activity.

Foreseeing the emergence of information-oriented, digitalized manufacturing, Nippon Steel Research Institute was established in 1986 as a fully-owned subsidiary of Nippon Steel Corporation and started its business with operations related to technology and patent surveys and information provision of the Group. Subsequently, we incorporated additional functions such as market research and training services. Now, we are undertaking a wide range of investigations and research projects for diverse clientele including government agencies, academic societies, industrial associations and business enterprises.

We are a group of professionals who not only analyze and verify information but also offer suggestions and recommendations from new perspectives. Our specialists in the three areas of technology, market and intellectual property provide multifaceted and comprehensive information, helping clients make decisions or diverse business judgments concerning varied issues including restructurings, start-ups, patent strategies, and medium- and long-term business plans.

With the business integration of Nippon Steel and Sumitomo Metals in October 2012, we made a new start as a general think tank of the Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Corporation Group, changing our name to Nippon Steel & Sumikin Research Institute Corporation ("NSRI"). In April 2019, Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Corporation was renamed Nippon Steel Corporation, and our name was also changed to Nippon Steel Research Institute.

Your continued support will be greatly appreciated.
