Research Institutes / On-site Facilities / Centers
We believe that one of the major roles of our University is to cooperate with local government and related organizations as well as local companies, to promote the development of new businesses and new products. The Scientific Cooperation Center for Industry Academia and Government is situated in the same building as the Research Institute for Bioresources and Biotechnology, and our objective is to contribute to the community and promote industry-academia-government cooperation for greater links with the local community and local companies. Specifically, as the point of call for questions and requests from companies and other organizations, we aim to gain a clear understanding of the request and to arrange the most suited university researcher to solve the problem, or otherwise refer the client to researchers at public testing institutes or other universities. In addition, in cases where we believe local government involvement is also necessary, we coordinate this process. Through our cooperation with the neighboring Ishikawa University Cooperation Business Incubator i-BIRD, we are involved in a range of coordination and support activities.
