The National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), one of the largest public research organizations in Japan, focuses on the creation and practical application of technologies useful to Japanese industry and society, and on “bridging” the gap between innovative technological seeds and commercialization. AIST has eight regional research bases throughout Japan in order to revitalize regional industry and economy, which we regard as one of the most important issues for Japanese economy.

AIST Kyushu aims to contribute to activate regional industry as the front point of contact to All-AIST for the Kyushu region through our 2 functions of “Research Base” and “Collaboration Base”.

As “Research Base”, we have Advanced Manufacturing Research Institute, which belongs to Department of Electronics and Manufacturing. We are conducting from basic research, to practical application, seamlessly. Also, we are “bridging” cutting-edge research results to regional companies and contribute to identify common problems and solve them. More specifically, we conduct research on new sensing technology, sensor network technology, and utilization of collected data to advance production technology, to streamline maintenance and management at manufacturing premises, and to achieve safer society.

As “Collaboration Base”, we have Collaboration Affairs Center. We propose effective utilization of All-AIST resources and support for regional companies to solve their technical problems. Also, we try to establish a network for cooperation with regional companies, universities, supporting organizations, and local governments, and solve their problems as “Industry-Academia-Public Collaboration Hub in Kyushu”.

Through such efforts and activating our 2 functions of “Research Base” and “Collaboration Base”, AIST Kyushu contributes to the regional industry in Kyushu.
