Collaboration with Yokohama city policies

The City of Yokohama positions the promotion of R&D in the biotechnology and life science fields and support for commercialization as some of the highest priority policies in the city and is seeking to promote "the Life Science City Yokohama"
The City has thus far focused efforts on the formation of bio-cluster by developing incubation facilities, promoting industry-academia-government collaboration, organizing strategic joint research projects that contribute to the improved health of the local citizens, developing network promotion organizations, etc. This project will be implemented as a part of these activities.
