About the equipment support base “Katsurayui”

An evolving network of cutting-edge research equipment. About the facility support base "Katsurayui"  In order to sustain and strengthen the world's top-level education and research infrastructure in the current severe financial situation, it is important to efficiently use existing basic facilities, and it is necessary to promote the sharing of facilities. Although the university has been making efforts to improve its basic facilities, it has been limited to efforts at the departmental level and has not yet been able to build a university-wide system. Therefore, in order to actively promote the sharing of facilities, the certification of facility support bases was started in the 31st academic year as an organization (base) to efficiently and effectively implement the joint use of excellent facilities both inside and outside the university, such as by district and research field, beyond the framework of existing departments.  In April of the second year of Reiwa, the Graduate School of Engineering was certified as a new certified base, "Katsura Yui" - an evolving network base for cutting-edge research equipment.  This center aims to strengthen and promote industry-academia collaboration and inter-university joint research by organically combining cutting-edge research equipment distributed on the Katsura Campus of Kyoto University with an IoT network system, positioning the Katsura Campus as an "open laboratory base for measurement, evaluation, and analysis" and realizing joint use of advanced research equipment both inside and outside the university.
