Toray Industries Inc plans to build a new research base, called the R&D Innovation Center for the Future, at its Shiga plant in Japan.  The development of the center will mark the 90th anniversary of Toray’s founding.

The R&D Innovation Center for the Future will have two sites – an integrated research site, which will have the function of idea creation as the core of R&D for the future and an experimental research site, which promotes development, evaluation and demonstration of prototypes based on those ideas. The total floor area of the center will be about 16,800 m2. The center will also interact with academia and other important partners from a variety of fields.
