Moving R&D closer to Industry, including foreign companies – open for registration –


Speaker: Dr. Lorenz Granrath, Supervisory Innovation Coordinator of the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST)


The National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), one of the largest public research organizations in Japan, focuses on the creation and practical realization of technologies useful to Japanese industry and society, and on “bridging” the gap between innovative technological seeds and commercialization.


Dr Lorenz Granrath did his doctorate about technological collaborations in Japan while spending one year at Tokyo University in 1992/93. After working in industry and R&D institutes, he built up the Fraunhofer Representative Office Japan from 2001 on. In 2014 he moved to AIST to initiate R&D projects with foreign companies and institutes. Besides his work for AIST, Dr. Granrath represents several small high tech companies in Japan.
