To promote research and development in the field of info-communications in the
Kansai region through collaboration between industry, academia
and government, the National Institute of Information and Communications
Technology (NICT) has established the Keihanna Info-Communication
Open Laboratory (open lab) in Keihanna Science City in June 2003.
The Council discusses the methods to effectively utilize the
open lab, obtain high performance of networks, establish human-centered
communication technologies, development and promotion of technology
and research, and establish industry-academia-government collaboration.
Currently, a worldwide research is being carried out through
three subcommittee meetings.
For example, New generation Network Subcommittee is dealing
with the optical communication technology and petabit network
A new industry will be created based on the new technology developed
at the open lab. The development of new technologies is essential
for further development in ICT and to provide its users with comfort
The current results obtained due to the collaborative
efforts of the industry, academia, and government, have helped
in the realization
of a fine model.
Thank you very much for your support to the Council.
