In 1995, a dramatic change was taking place not only in Japan and but throughout
the world. This world-wide trend was called the gInformation Revolutionh
which purported to create a society equipped with advanced information
networks. In the same year, ISIT was founded with the aim of contributing
to the development of Fukuoka as a hub of information-related industries,
and leading the industrial sectors in the future.
Since then, ISIT has played a pioneering role in the field of systems and information
technologies for more than 12 years, consequently promoting local industries. Today, however,
it is anticipated that ISIT use its experience more liberally to develop new innovations,
and we have decided to add the field of advanced sciences & technologies including nanotechnology
to its domains of research, development, and exchange activities.
This has enabled us to form a research community consisting of scientists with different backgrounds.
Furthermore, we will extend our assistance to new ventures in the region, making full use of
our experiences in coordinating industry-academia-government collaboration over the years.
We believe that ISIT will carry greater weight in its future role in promoting the local economy.
We look forward to dedicating ourselves in making further contributions to the realization of
a vigorous community in this region. We ask for your continued support and cooperation to this end.
