The Tsukuba Kenkyu Shien Center (Tsukuba Center, Inc.) is sponsoring an exhibition of high-tech products that have been developed from local research in recent years. Located just north of Doho Park just west of the Space Center, the "Shien Center" is an organization developed with both private and public funds that is designed as a support service for science and technology research and development.
Various firms located in Ibaraki will be displaying new high-tech products they have been developing, with displays being open from 10 am to 5 pm both days. There will also be special presentations on subjects such as "The Environment and Recycling" and "Materials and Manufacturing Technology" on the 21st from 2:15 - 4:15 pm, followed at 4:25 by the keynote address by Kenichi Matsuno, head of the Mechanical Engineering Research Lab, on the subject of government research policy and local industry. An "interchange time" will follow from 5:40.
The second day will feature a talk by Ikuo Takeuchi, a chief researcher for the NTT Software Research Lab, on the topic of multimedia. That presentation begins at 3:30 pm and is followed by another "interchange time" from 5 - 6 pm. For further information, call the Shien Center at 58-6033.
