Workshops starting in 2024

New technologies for the detection and labeling of pathogenic microorganisms

Chairperson

Prof. Dr. Tomohiko Inomata, Graduate School of Engineering, Nagoya Institute of Technology


Overview

The recent outbreaks and spread of various infectious diseases have reminded us of the importance of rapid and easy detection and labeling of pathogenic microorganisms. This study group will hold sessions and lectures on related technologies to explore new technologies for detecting pathogenic microorganisms. The goal is to develop new technologies in collaboration with diverse members from industry, academia, and government.


Research group on digital innovation in construction technology

Chairperson

Junji Kato, Professor, Graduate School of Engineering, Nagoya University


Overview

The use of digital technology in the construction and civil engineering fields is an essential initiative for the future advancement of core infrastructure, including labour saving and high functionality. Researchers and engineers from a wide range of fields in industry, academia and government in the region will meet to address a wide range of technologies and materials for realising higher functionality (lighter weight, higher strength, shorter delivery times, etc.), and to identify issues that will promote local industry, such as the upgrading of process technology and the identification of leading research themes. This research groupd will discuss the use of digital technology for our better society.


Study Group on Quantification of Aesthetic Sensibility

Chairperson

Mikiko KAWASUMI, Professor of Meijo University


Overview

The aim of this study group is to quantify and analyze the "beauty" and "comfort" of landscapes, products, art, etc. using data science and AI technology. The results will be applied to a wide range of social issues, such as managing regional landscapes, creating new value products and services, improving people's health and QOL, and educating the next generation.


Non-dimensional analyzing filter technologies can make infections free space for healthy longevity society with compact fusion reactors

Chairperson

Toshio Kawahara, College of Life and Health Sciences, Chubu University, Professor


Overview

Fusion energy is the future promising technology. There are many superior technologies which are key technologies for the realization of the compact nuclear fusion reactor. Such high technologies should have other applications in the current society. One of them is the achieving the infection free space using the spacial control of environments. We would like to discuss about both of basic technologies and possible applications for the spin off of fusion technologies with the unified theoretical aspect of the key gradients of each technology.


Workshop on Automation Technology in Analytical Sciences using RA-AIMS

Chairperson

Kei Zaitsu, Professor


Overview

Ambient Ionization Mass Spectrometry (AIMS) enables on-site and real-time analysis without the need for pre-treatment, making it highly compatible with automated analysis technologies. Recently, numerous automated analysis systems combining AIMS with robotic automation (RA) have been developed, particularly in Europe and the United States. Therefore, this workshop aims to devise and implement innovative automated analysis technologies based on RA and AIMS for practical application in society.


Research Group for the Creation of Medical Concepts for Maximizing QOL

Chairperson

SAITO Kuniaki, Fujita Health University, Vice-President


Overview

Healthy life expectancy is the period of time during which physical and mental health and satisfaction are maintained. In the research group, we will create engineering technologies to enhance individual QOL through therapeutic actions. QOL is constructed from the three elements of “survival time,” “relationships with others,” and “mental satisfaction,” and concepts for medical treatment that maximize these elements will be developed.

Companies and researchers will utilize their fields of expertise to co-create new medical technologies and work to introduce them into future medical practices. And through discussions, the goal is to draw out future monetization scenarios.

Research Group on Next Generation Overlay Network Technology

Chairperson

Hidekazu Suzuki, Faculty of Information Engineering, Meijo University, Associate Professor


Overview

Network-level security is very important for the realization of the Digital Garden City. This research group discusses next-generation overlay network technologies that achieve secure connectivity between various devices, together with corporate engineers. The objective of this group is to build several model cases to implement safe and secure IoT systems widely in the society by utilizing these technologies.


Workshop for cross-disciplinary development of practical applications of soft actuators

Chairperson

Toshiki Hiruta, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Toyohashi University of Technology, Assistant Professor


Overview

This workshop is aimed at developing practical applications of the soft actuators composed of intelligent materials by sharing techniques and ideas with researchers and engineers in Aich prefecture. Practical soft robotics or industrial systems applied the soft actuator for agriculture and welfare will be discussed in this workshop. These applications can provide solutions to the decreasing birthrate and aging population of Japan. This workshop contributes to improve productivity of the robotics industry in Aich prefecture.


Research Group for Development of Novel Permanent Magnet Materials

Chairperson

Masaki Mizuguchi, Institute of Materials and Systems for Sustainability, Nagoya University


Overview

Current permanent magnets such as Neodymium magnets contain rare elements such as heavy rare earths, which are undesirable from an element-strategy viewpoint. Therefore, this research group aims to discuss and share the latest information and technologies, including domestic and international research and development trends, on new high-performance permanent magnets that require no heavy rare earths or precious metals, and to create leading research themes that can be used in next-generation automobiles and other vehicles.


Healthcare manufacturing through medical and engineering collaboration based on business model construction

Chairperson

Yoshifumi Morita, Professor, Nagoya Institute of Technology


Overview

Recently, manufacturing in the healthcare field has been actively conducted through medical-engineering collaboration, but there are not so many cases where this has led to business. In order to promote manufacturing through medical-engineering collaboration, including the creation of business models, members from the medical, engineering, industry, academia, and government sectors will not only understand the latest technologies in artificial intelligence, embedded systems, and edge computing, but will also listen to lectures by experts in business model sand share survey results, while sharing technologies and information that will enable manufacturing through medical-engineering collaboration.


Conference on Advanced Organic Synthesis for Next-Generation Green Chemistry

Chairperson

Naoki Yasukawa, Nagoya Institute of Technology


Overview

“Green chemistry," which aims to develop environmentally friendly organic synthesis, has recently attracted much attention. In this research conference, the cutting-edge and practical techniques will be shared and discussed for the development of advanced organic synthesis for next-generation green chemistry.
