Baseball practice equipment used by high school ballplayers and professional players, earthquake-resistant shelters designed from the perspective of protecting children, and new sports and equipment for both children and adults. Over the past year, all of these were born in Minato Ward, Osaka City. 2018 saw the opening of Garage Minato, a center in Minato Ward that connects town factories with businesses, universities, and researchers, and the start of a public-private partnership project that utilizes the garage. What is the secret behind this initiative to gather local issues and solve them with the power of manufacturing, which has changed the participating companies and enabled them to create something new? Players based in Minato Ward will talk about the project.


We will have a program of discussions among researchers, venture companies, and large corporations from various perspectives, not limited to the themes of this session.
