About Toyohashi Tech
Toyohashi University of Technology (Toyohashi Tech) is one of Japan’s most dynamic science and technology based universities. Founded in 1976, the university is a vibrant modern institute with research activities reflecting the modern era of advanced electronics and engineering.

The Electronics-Inspired Interdisciplinary Research Institute (EIIRIS) is Toyohashi Tech’s new flagship research complex. "The aim of EIIRIS is to produce world-class innovative research," says President Yoshiyuki Sakaki, internationally renowned molecular biologist who led Japan’s International Human Genome Project. "To do this we are bringing together ambitious young researchers from diverse fields to collaborate on pioneering new frontiers in science such as brain/neuro-electronics as well as tackling some of the major issues mankind faces today: issues such as environmental changes and aging societies.”

The Electronics-Inspired Interdisciplinary Research Institute consists of a new 1500 m2 dedicated building constructed with funding from MEXT and completed in October 2010. The new building is connected to the adjacent 2300 m2 VBL via a corridor on the third floor between the buildings, enabling ready access to the LSI-fab and other facilities in the VBL clean rooms. In addition to the faculty members from existing research centers at Toyohashi Tech, EIIRIS has three new research staff including Adarsh Sandhu, who started in April 2010 as tenured professor at EIIRIS; and ten tenure track researchers who were recruited for the Program to Foster Young Researchers in Cutting-Edge Interdisciplinary Research launched in 2009. The tenure track researchers—of whom three are from overseas—have backgrounds including life sciences, biotechnology, neuroscience, robotics, microchips and magnetophotonic devices.

The EIIRIS staff share a large open-plan office on the third floor of the new research building for effective communication without walls and barriers. EIIRIS is an extension of the current Global Center of Excellence (G-COE) “Frontiers of Intelligent Sensing” program.

And importantly, EIIRIS puts Toyohashi Tech on the world stage as a center for conducting innovative, world class interdisciplinary research. Toyohashi Tech welcomes scientists and engineers from all over the world to collaborate with researchers at EIIRIS to test ideas, and create new paradigms based on electronics-inspired interdisciplinary research.
