#1 Message from Chairman

Chairman

 A truly rich and comfortable society is possible through the vitalization of socio-economic,cultural and educational activities. To do this,Japan must address and resolve a number of issues related to globalization, an aging population and the environment. Advanced info-communications technology is expected to play a vital role in reforming socio-economic systems. It is therefore very important to make even more effort to promote R&D in the field of info-communications technology, and to create competitive businesses.

 Since its establishment in October 1988, the Support Center for Advanced Telecommunications Technology Research (SCAT) has been engaged in the development of info-communications technology by reviewing and surveying advanced technologies, funding for R&D projects, and providing information on advanced technologies. SCAT intends to continue its active supports for further promotion of R&D in the info-communications technology areas.
