Industry-Academic Partnerships

Placing importance on industry-academic partnerships, Yokohama National University (YNU) proactively promotes industry-academic collaborative research led by both YNU researchers and corporate researchers. The Institute of Advanced Sciences (IAS) focuses on bringing in the best corporate researchers from industry as key persons who can take the lead in faster implementation of the newest research results in the field of sustainable living with risk management, and promote the improvement of the research system for such purpose. By inviting prominent international researchers to participate in such industry-academic collaborative research, we can anticipate the new development of industrial technologies that manage risks in Japan. IAS is currently involved in industry-academic collaborative research with the following companies. Information on the support system for researchers from the industrial world (currently under development) is also available below.
