What is Technology Co-creation for Semiconductor of Tohoku University?

Technology Co-creation for Semiconductor of Tohoku University is a co-creation hub where researchers and engineer from various industry, academia and government in various fields of semiconductors co-create to realize the future vision of society

We will promote semiconductor-related research and development from materials and devices to manufacturing equipment, processes, evaluation / analysis, and integrated circuits, and aim to continue to create research results through industry-academia-government collaboration.

3 Hubs where promote co-creation
