Partner Profile: Nagoya University

Nagoya University, established in 1871, has long been a leader in higher education and research in Japan. Nagoya is the fourth largest city in Japan, and is the capital city of Aichi Prefecture being located in the southwest part of the Chubu (Central Japan) region. NC State’s longstanding partnership with Nagoya University began in the early 1980’s and remains vibrant today with active academic cooperation that includes student exchanges, short-term training programs, cross-cultural exchanges as well as research collaboration among faculty in areas of complementary expertise ranging from life sciences, engineering, health and agriculture.

While working to further strengthen its research and educational abilities, Nagoya University is also making university-wide efforts in internationalization, gender equality, and social contribution. The world-class research at Nagoya University is evidenced by its six Nobel Prize recipients in the 21st century. Additionally, through its commitment to promote collaboration and technology transfer, Nagoya University established the Technology Partnership of Nagoya University (NU Tech) in the Research Triangle Park.

On November 10th, NU Tech will host the 11th annual Technology Roundtable that will focus on NextGen platform technologies for drug discovery.
