National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) is one of the largest public research institute on industrial technology in Japan.

We aim to create innovations that contribute to solve social issues and strengthen economic growth and industrial competitiveness, through the creation and practical application of technologies that are useful for industry and society, and the bridging that connects innovative technology seeds to commercialization.

AIST Kyushu is only base in the Kyushu and Okinawa regions, and it has two missions: a "research base" and a "collaboration base", and its mission is to contribute to the creation of regional innovation.

As a “research base”, we will work on the sophistication of new sensing technology, sensor network technology, collection data utilization technology, and lead the research and development of measurement and sensing technology that contributes to the realization of smart manufacturing and manufacturing networks.

As a “collaboration base”, we will work closely with prefectural industrial technology research institutes, universities, technical colleges, and industrial support organizations in the Kyushu and Okinawa regions.
We also utilize flexibly and efficiently the resources of AIST, which is centered on Tsukuba and covers all Japan.

Through these efforts, we will promote the provision of solutions to companies that support regional core industries such as semiconductors, automobiles, food, agriculture and livestock.
Also, in AIST Kyushu, we are providing a prototype line for semiconductor packages that use "minimal fabs" and working with universities and public institutions to provide prototype functions for various IoT devices. By providing a variety of device prototype environments to potential users, we aim to create a new regional device industry ecosystem.

AIST can demonstrate its significance only when the research results are utilized in industry and society. When you have any technical difficulties, please feel free to use AIST.
