Tohoku University and Seiko Epson Corp. reached an agreement to cooperate in R&D, training and other possible fields of joint endeavor to help enhance science and technology capabilities and human resources development in Japan.

Under the agreement, the two parties will use their R&D capabilities and expert personnel to contribute to the development of Japanese and global scholarship and industrial technology. The companies will work on joint projects in both cutting-edge and basic research fields, studies into the application of such research, creation of new business, and training of researchers who can play key roles on the world stage.

This is Tohoku University's first alliance with a manufacturer of precision equipment. The agreement marks Epson's second tie-up with a Japanese university, following its partnership with Shinshu University.

Tohoku University and Epson have worked in close partnership for some time on projects such as research in the materials field and an internship program for students. Building on the results of their joint efforts, both have now decided to formalize their partnership to promote greater organizational cooperation on an ongoing basis, enabling the parties to make effective use of each other's resources.
