HOME > Open Platform
  TIA establishes and advances three types of platforms based on its accumulated resources, such as large and advanced facilities and equipment, long-history research results, intellectual properties, knowhow, and human resources.
  Various activities are being carried out, for example national R&D projects run by companies, technology research associations, or R&D consortiums, as well as research collaboration, open research facilities, research and technology training, lectures, and summer schools.
  In the phase 2 (Fy2015‐19), TIA aims its growth by improving user convenience with one‐stop services in collaboration contract, open access of facilities, and human resource development, taking project planning and marketing in collaboration with public investors, and branding with international alliances.
