The Nanoelectronics Collaborative Research Center (NCRC), under the Institute for Industrial Science at the University of Tokyo, and Sharp Corp. jointly established Todai-Sharp Laboratories, a research base aimed at conducting research and development for flexible electronics, which is expected to be the next generation in electronics technologies.

Full-fledged research activities are scheduled to begin this month. The R&D facility will operate under a multi-year (five years) collaborative research agreement signed between the University of Tokyo and Sharp.

The recently inaugurated Todai-Sharp Laboratories will operate under a new, non-conventional concept in conducting R&D, and will be managed and operated jointly by the University of Tokyo and Sharp. This lab will conduct advance R&D on innovative elemental and fundamental technologies with the intention of creating new lifestyles by working to integrate the capabilities derived from basic, long-term research in the university academic environment with the research prowess for developing practical applications offered by business.

Specifically, highly capable researchers primarily from within the University of Tokyo will be recruited and selected as full-time researchers for the project and will be resident at Todai-Sharp Laboratories along with younger staff members and mid-career engineers from Sharp to engage in collaborative research.
