The Industrial Research Institute of Ishikawa was established as an industry promotion center in 1877. In 1962, it became a comprehensive research center after merging with a textile center, a machinery center, and a craft center. In 1983 it was relocated to its present site.
During those years, we provided technological consultation and guidance, and supervised experiments. These studies included measurement and analysis, research and development, and provided technological information. Since small and medium-sized enterprises often do not have the facilities to accommodate such experiments, the Institute has played an important role in industry. We have expanded our technological exchange network outside Ishikawa and internationally in order to support the promotion and internationalization of the technology of small and medium-sized enterprises.
We think the Internet is the most appropriate way of introducing the activities of IRII. I hope you will access our employees and enterprises in Ishikawa prefecture through the Internet.
We provide consultation and guidance in order to solve the technological problems of each company.
We perform measurement, experiment, and analysis on devices and materials from companies, through ultra-modern testing and measurement tools.
We have performed various types of research which aid in the promotion of production technology and the development of new products. This research has benefited the advancement of local industry.
We have a computer network with research institutes at home and abroad and provide up-to-date technological information through the Internet.
