SmartCityAiCT is a base where ideas for the real world can be implemented.
It’s where open innovation from industry, government, and academia meets to solve wider social issues.
Innovation takes shape.
Epson is a proud participant in Smart City Aizu-Wakamastu - a forward-thinking municipal initiative working to solve problems through open interaction between industry, government, and academia, and ideas born here are already spreading to other areas around Aizu. Our goal is to expand the idea of “smart cities” in various fields, interconnecting people and society with Epson products as hubs.We will also be able to test ideas and implement experiments with partners and start-ups gathered at WeWork Shibuya Scramble Square and through open innovation, and roll the results out across Epson's global network.
