International Symposium on Green Electronics – Innovation for New Power Semiconductor Devices


Green Innovation from Kyoto Institute of Technology

  Our university has developed an intimate relationship with industries that grew out of ancient Kyoto’s culture and traditions. Building on this, we have formulated a vision which focuses on basic strategies to make us more available to other regions in Asia, and the world at large. Ultimately, we will become an “open” engineering school hub for innovation. We aim for strategic globalization in the following three areas “design and architecture,” “macromolecular and fibrous materials” and “green innovation” as the strength and feature based on the redefinition of the mission of a national university.

  At this symposium, world leading researchers will provide insights from a historical and panoramic perspective on new-generation power electronics, one of the most urgent areas in green innovation. As this field evolves, power consumption will be curbed further. Discussion will pinpoint research strategies and directions, enabling new value creation in power electronics.
