This research center is aggressively engaged in industry-academia collaboration. To be more specific, we are involved in joint research and funded research with private-sector companies, and promoting the admittance of researchers and technicians as research workers. Moreover, we have been using contributions and research expenses from the private sector to establish a department to use these contributions to hire specially appointed faculty members from outside.
We have also been aggressively promoting the construction of large joint research projects in collaboration with the university's Open Innovation Promotion Department.
