Yokohama National University Global COE Program Innovative Integration between Medicine and Engineering Based on Information Communications Technology

Organization & Members

Yokohama National University is taking a leading part in this project, and will collaborate with Yokohama City University, National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) and University of Oulu. We will educate on and research into the area that unite information, devices, mechanical, the living body, and medical treatment. These activities will involve coordinated exchange of human resources, encourage joint research, and standardization and legislating by a consortium of Industry, universities, and government. The project aims to form a global base where education, research, management, ethics, and business are harmonized.
