Research & Development Centers

About Research & Development Centers

Since July 1, 2015, the R&D centers have been sequentially founded under the Headquarters for International Industry-University Collaboration. They are founded for promoting joint research and development in academic fields of high social demands, and organizing a cooperative research system. Their operation cost only comes from an external fund such as a collaborative or sponsored research with private sectors. As the mission of a national university, we are responsible for education, research and social contribution. And the R&D centers are the new body which undertakes a role of social contribution. We are continuously supporting their centers and developing more R&D center of other fields in the future.
