Materiality 03
Development of new industries by leveraging Hokkaido’s natural resources

Muroran Institute of Technology

This project is aimed at building a development platform through the joint efforts of various companies, universities, public organizations, and local authorities to accelerate the development of functional food ingredients derived from Hokkaido’s natural resources that help maintain good brain function. This will be done based on seeds from the Muroran Institute of Technology, such as its natural plant extracts library, biological activity evaluation system, and testing farm fields.
