NGK Material Innovation Laboratory features the collaboration of the professors of various specialties (materials, devices, processing, and simulation chemistry) from NITech with the researchers from NGK R&D sections to accomplish the challenging goals by consolidating university's science and industry's technology. This scheme makes it possible to conduct researches on multiple tasks in different technical aspects simultaneously, which further enables rapid implementation of a series of R&&D from fundamentals to mass-production techniques.
