Social Contribution Activities

Supporting the United Nations University Project

We have supported the United Nations University's environmental management project since 1996. In addition to loaning analytical instruments, we support the organization of symposia and training workshops. Shimadzu's specialized technology and know-how in the environmental analysis field is being utilized in the project, and we are supporting the research and investigations conducted by the member countries.


Academic Support: “Shimadzu – A. Nakamoto Scholarship”

We established a Shimadzu – A. Nakamoto Scholarship program at the Vietnam National University (Hanoi) to actively support researching topics increasingly necessary to Vietnam, such as food safety and security and multifaceted evaluation of polymer materials.

Once every two years, a Shimadzu Cup Research Paper contest is held to help develop young researchers and promote scientific technology, where the researcher that presents the best paper is awarded the prize. The contest is judged by prominent scholars and researchers involved in cutting-edge fields of pharmaceutical analysis in China, who also have an opportunity for technical interaction.
