Greeting

Greeting

I am Michihiro TSUCHIYA, the organizer of the TONOMACHI LifeScience Cluster Division of Kawasaki Institute of Industrial Promotion (KIIP).
The TONOMACHI LifeScience Cluster Division was established in 2020 with the aim of developing the KING SKYFRONT into a world-class industrial hub in the life science field.
Today, open innovation is one of the keywords in the research and development of new technologies and products. Based on the seeds and needs of companies, academia, and research institutions, the Management Division is working to build an open innovation ecosystem at the KING SKYFRONT, and is also promoting exchange and collaboration with industrial hubs in Japan and overseas.
In March 2022, the Tamagawa Sky Bridge, linking the KING SKYFRONT to the Haneda area, was officially opened and convenient access to domestic and international industrial hubs was materially improved.
We would like to further promote cooperation and co-creation among companies while taking advantage of these environmental benefits.
All the staff, including myself, will continue to make efforts while building face-to-face relationships with everyone involved.
Thank you.

川崎市産業振興財団についてKawasaki City Industrial Promotion Foundationa

川崎市産業振興財団について

川崎市産業振興財団は昭和63年、川崎市産業振興会館の機能を活⽤し、技術の⾼度化や企業交流、創造性豊かな産業⼈材の育成等を⽬的として設⽴されました。以来、産業環境の変化に適切に対応しながら、事業内容の拡⼤を図ってまいりました。平成27年には、ナノ医療イノベーションセンター(iCONM)を開設し、先端的医療分野、薬学分野等における研究開発と社会実装、技術移転、⼈材育成などにも取り組んでいます。

当財団の特徴は、職員や豊富な知⾒を持つ専⾨員が、相談者のニーズを適切に把握し、あらゆる⾓度から伴⾛型でサポートを⾏うところです。「出張キャラバン隊」は、技術や製品、⾦融等の専⾨家複数⼈が、いわばキャラバンのように隊を組んで相談者のもとを訪問する当財団独⾃のスタイルです。また、⼤企業や研究機関が保有する開放特許等の知的財産を中⼩企業に紹介し、技術や製品の⾼度化、⾼付加価値化を推進する取組は「川崎モデル」と呼ばれ、藤原久美⽒の著書「なぜ、川崎モデルは成功したのか?」(平成26年/実業之⽇本社)にも取り上げられました。

新産業を創出し、起業家を育成するのも当財団の中核的な取組の⼀つです。「新川崎・創造のもり」には、川崎市によってKBIC、NANOBIC、AIRBICという3つのインキュベーション施設が整備されており、当財団はパートナー企業とともに⼊居する企業の活動⽀援を⾏っています。また、起業家⽀援のワンストップ拠点である「川崎・ネド・イノベーションセンター(K-NIC)」をNEDOと川崎市との3者で運営するほか、起業家の登⻯⾨ともいえる「かわさき起業家オーディション」は通算130回の開催を数え、全国の皆様からご応募をいただいています。
