In the current four-year term project, the research fields related to advanced magnesium alloys have been focused to the selected three categories: ecomaterial design and processing, high qualification of mechanical performance, and high performance design and processing in functionality. Each research group is introduced together with its strategic directions toward future R & D for advanced magnesium alloys. Each group has its own joint research network to drive new research directions. Academic and industrial importance is stressed as a fruitful result of the present project.
