Since the Great East Japan Earthquake, development of clean and renewable new energy source and realization of efficient and smart independent energy system by best mix of energy are sought urgently.


Therefore, we intend to support the reconstruction of the Tohoku area and renewal of Japan and to contribute to the founding of energy technology nation through realization of state-of-the-art battery fundamental technology (solar cell, secondary battery, fuel battery) and its energy optimization integrated system by business (vertical integration type firms)-academia collaboration open innovation based on nano-structure interface control technology, which Tohoku University has been accumulating for many years.


※This project, entitled “Creation of Core Technologies for Advanced Energy Devices through Vertically-Integrated Technologies and New System of Industry-Academia Collaboration,” is subsidized by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI)’s “FY2012 Industry-Academia Collaboration Innovation Promotion Project Grant.”
