The Collaborative Research Cluster will promote joint research with the support of Tokyo Tech's Open Innovation Platform(1) from research planning to commercialization.

So far, DENSO and Tokyo Tech have conducted joint research and produced results in many fields including thermal management technology and packaging technology for in-vehicle computers. For the age of CASE (connected, automated, shared, and electric) vehicles, DENSO and Tokyo Tech have signed an organizational partnership agreement to accelerate their joint research, and will make coordinated efforts to conduct comprehensive research in a wide range of fields at the Collaborative Research Cluster.

Specifically, the Collaborative Research Cluster will have, on the Ookayama campus of Tokyo Tech, a dedicated space to conduct applied research on heat dissipation technology for automotive components, as well as explore themes in new research together with researchers in different fields of specialization including electronics, semiconductors, electricity, mechanics, and communication to promote joint research with them. Moreover, the Collaborative Research Cluster will be staffed by people from DENSO and Tokyo Tech to promote implementing research in society, and open innovation in cooperation with other companies.

Based on DENSO's technologies and know-how accumulated in product developing automotive components and Tokyo Tech's academic knowledge acquired from its advanced research, the Collaborative Research Cluster will engage in sophisticated research projects.

In addition, DENSO IT Laboratory, Inc., a DENSO Group company, launched a course "DENSO IT LAB: Collaborative research on recognition and learning algorithms" at Tokyo Tech's School of Computing on April 1. The DENSO Group and Tokyo Tech will work more closely with each other to promote open innovation.
