“The centre will play a vital role in helping resolve such global issues as climate change, water shortages, and resource depletion. I also look for the facility to serve as a vehicle for joint research and development collaborations with universities and public research institutions around the world, innovating world-class technologies,” Toray president Akihiro Nikkaku said in his speech at the opening ceremony.
The centre comprises two buildings. One will undertake integrated research to generate ideas for the revolutionary materials, ideas, and systems of tomorrow. The other will engage in empirical research through prototyping, assessments, and demonstrations based on those ideas.
The facility will serve as an innovation hub, notably through its international conference hall, exhibition and demonstration areas, and open laboratories. It will thereby propel strategic open innovation by engaging and collaborating with academia and key partners in diverse fields, integrating technologies with them.
The centre will uphold Toray’s research underpinnings, which are to ultimate pursuit and to commit to long-term continuity and to technological integration. It will fuse fine polymers and nanofabrication from its proprietary polymer technology with materials informatics and artificial intelligence. It will thereby reinforce research and technological development by creating advanced materials, devices, and systems in advanced medical, renewable energy, filtration and separation systems, and other eco and lifestyle innovation areas.
