An open laboratory that breaks down existing barriers.

Shin Open Lab: Certified lab by University of Tokyo Green ICT Project (GUTP)


Director: Manabu Tsukada
Associate Professor, Graduate School of Information Science and Technology, The University of Tokyo


Currently, IoT( Internet of Things) is connecting people and things, and various new services are being born. In the coming society of "Society 5.0", social innovations, which solve issues spanning across many fields are expected to be created, connecting  the real world to cyberspace.

In order to create an open platform that acts in a social infrastructure-like manner, and which can contribute to the creation of these social innovations, we must overcome various existing barriers, such as those which exist between universities and society, academic fields, organizations, and countries.

I am hoping that Shin Open Lab will become a place where people with diverse backgrounds can bring together various technologies, have discussions, exchange information, and overcome existing existing barriers.
It is alos my hope that many practical research and development projects will emerge and swiftly materialize as the result of these discussions and exchanges.
