9th Photonics Symposium

2017-1-26 (Thu) 10:00 - 17:00

In the Photonics Center, we've created innovation together with 5 collaborating corporations in the 10 years since 2007.
At the same time, we've promoted awareness for university faculty, staff, and young researchers to take the initiative for creating innovation as well as systems for this promotion.

To wrap-up this project in its final year, we will be holding an open seminar in Tokyo to present the results of 10 years of organizational reforms and research and talk about future development in the future.
