The KAITEKI Institute, Inc. is a global research institute focused on meeting 21st century challenges in energy, the environment, and healthcare.
"Kaiteki," which traditionally means "comfort" or "ease" in Japanese, was chosen for the Institute's name to represent the global quality of life that will be made possible through sustainable technologies and through breakthrough scientific advances in human healthcare.
The Institute will not only fund the highest quality of scientific and engineering research around the world—it will also identify and articulate future societal trends, needs, and challenges, which will be used to set subsequent research targets.
The KAITEKI Institute will propose solutions based on promising research results as new technology platforms within the research arms or businesses of Mitsubishi Chemical Group.
The Institute will help make society healthier, more comfortable, and more affluent by supporting long-term R&D and business strategy for Mitsubishi Chemical Group, while taking advantage of a global scientific and information network.
