Collaboration projects with Kawasaki City: promotion of advanced research and new industries by industry, government, and academia.

Shin-Kawasaki Town Campus (K2) was established in the Shin-Kawasaki Forest of Creation in the year 2000, in collaboration with Kawasaki City. As a base for industry-government-academia collaboration, the campus promotes cutting-edge research, new industries, and new business initiatives. Specifically, 18 research projects in the fields of robotics, environment, energy and other areas are currently being implemented (AY 2022) and the campus has brought forth new technologies, new industries, and venture companies by linking the diverse research outcomes of each of these projects with the resources and needs of companies or other organizations. In addition, some of its research achievements are also introduced at open seminars organized for companies, research institutions, and the general public based on our partnership activities with Kawasaki City. In AY 2022, as a countermeasure against the spread of COVID-19, the program was held twice in online format and once in in-person format. Furthermore, the campus organizes events such as “A Joyful Day for Science Play” aimed at young children, providing a space that allows people to interactively learn about science and technology in an enjoyable manner. In AY 2022, as a countermeasure against the spread of COVID-19, the “A Joyful Day for Science Play” event was scaled down to less than 300 people with advance registration required. The activity was carried out indoors, centered on seven hands-on science events.
