■ Open a class on Japanese technology at IIT Hyderabad
While Japan is generally famous worldwide for its high-tech society, where major social and environmental challenges are tackled by emerging industries like robotics, automation, and artificial intelligence, there is not that much detailed information out there about the inner workings of these industries.
Tech Japan collaborates with Japanese tech company founders and CEOs in order to co-organize classes for IIT Hyderabad students where these experts can share their unique insights. Topics addressed will include:
・The social and/or environmental problems that the speakers are working to solve
・The cutting edge technologies that they are currently developing
・The opportunities that they can provide to IIT graduates and students
■ Provide opportunities for Co-R&D
Tech Japan provides and fosters opportunities for Co-R&D and Co-Research between Japanese tech companies and IIT Hyderabad students and professors. Our member Mr. Takeyari is a former managing director and Sony India Software Centre Pvt. Ltd. and he has knowledge and capacity to support for it. Based on purpose, theme, technology, and budget, we can match properly and incubate it.
■ Tech Japan
The goal of Tech Japan is to foster a collaboration between Indian talents and Japanese technology companies. Japan has excellent interesting technologies that it uses in order to try and solve major worldwide social issues. However, Japanese companies are lacking in global talents, especially in the field of IT. Tech Japan provides information and offers great opportunities for Indian talents to join Japanese companies that try to solve major social and environmental problems with cutting edge technology.
