    Epson and Shinshu University Conclude Research Agreement
    Tokyo
    FEB  2006 – Shinshu University and Seiko Epson Corp. (Epson) announced
    January 19 they have come to an agreement aimed at ensuring their
    mutual growth. The agreement covers areas as diverse as the promotion
    of joint research and development, exchanges of human resources,
    education and cultivation of human resources, culture and the arts,
    contributions to local society, and protection of the environment.
    Shinshu
    University has previously formed partnership agreements with a wide
    range of organizations including local governments, financial
    institutions, and corporations. These agreements have aided the
    development of human resources, contributed to cultural advances, and
    to the creation of new industries in the local community.
    This
    agreement represents the first time for Shinshu University to enter
    into a comprehensive partnership with a manufacturer, and the first
    time for Epson to enter into a comprehensive partnership with a
    Japanese university.
    The university has a particularly strong
    research and educational background in nanotechnology, IT,
    environmental studies, and life sciences. In recent times, it has
    looked to make advances in areas that are problematical in the
    corporate world such as research into basic technologies, and long-term
    research projects. The university has been especially active in forming
    tie-ups with the business world to transfer its technologies, and put
    its research results into practice.
    Epson, which is based near
    Shinshu University in Nagano Prefecture, Japan, has identified the need
    to quicken the pace of research and development with greater efficiency
    in order to produce distinctive products in a timely manner that
    respond to market demands. Moreover, as technology becomes increasingly
    complex, it is becoming increasingly difficult for a single company to
    bear the expense or spend the time to meet all of these challenges.
    Going
    forward, the two organizations hope to create an ongoing system that
    will maximize resources, and will produce world-class research results.
    In addition, it is hoped that the partnership will be successful in
    improving learning, developing new industries, and revitalizing the
    local economy.
