Forum for Asking and Answering Questions
Shimadzu was founded in 1875, during a period of turmoil following the Meiji restoration, based on a desire to help open Japan to the world through science and technology.
That passion for science and technology has remained unchanged for over 140 years. However, there have been dramatic changes in the global business environment during that time.
In a world where that are no correct answers, we must create our own right answers.
And to find those answers, we need to ask many questions.
For this reason, we established the KYOLABS facility to create answers collaboratively.
In other words, we want to create previously undiscovered value by posing many questions, engaging in dialogue, expanding our horizons, verifying our ideas based on data, and going through a variety of trial-and-error processes, not just by ourselves but together with you.
