Hideyuki MYOJIN

University Research Administrator(Sinior URA)

In this era of fast-paced R&D, self-sufficiency has been replaced with open innovation, taking skills, knowledge, and ideas from academia and applying them to create new products and services. Tokyo Tech also strongly promotes open innovation, which is my area of responsibility. Previously I worked in the telecommunications industry, engaging in R&D, corporate planning, and environment and energy consulting. I now utilize this experience in responding to the needs of Tokyo Tech and its partners in open innovation. If I can be of assistance, feel free to consult me.
