Donations are provided to organizations participating in the Biological Robot Contest.

Efforts to Support "Researchers" in the Life Sciences Field

Based on our company philosophy of “Contribute to the development of life science knowledge”, we have also been supporting researchers in the life sciences for over a decade.

Operation of “Science Signaling ” Japanese Site

Since 2003, we have operated the Japanese-language version of the online resource, Science Signaling, on our website. Science Signalling is intended for researchers and is managed by the American Association for the Advancement of Sciences (AAAS), which publishes the journal, Science.

Supporting Volunteer Activities in Local Communities

Since 2016, we have supported our employees who wish to volunteer in recovery efforts, especially following large-scale earthquakes and natural disasters caused by heavy rain.

Volunteer Activity Support System

To support volunteer activities by employees, we have established the following systems.

  • -The participation period shall be treated as regular work attendance; similar to business trips, all expenses (travel, lodging, allowance, etc) shall be paid.

However, in order to protect the health and safety of our volunteers,

  • -The maximum period for activities shall be one (1) week.
  • -Multiple participants shall participate simultaneously.
