Chiba University teams up with Japan External Trade Organization

Japanese university turns overseas for selling its growing technologies

A Japanese university is turning overseas to find new customers for farming and medical technologies developed by its staff. Chiba University has teamed up with the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO). They signed an agreement last month.

The push abroad will mainly be online for now as the coronavirus pandemic pulls the plug on conferences and other trade events. Researchers hope to promote technologies for things like breeding vegetables that grow well indoors.

They are already making progress in China. The university's technology is helping a next-generation plant-growing facility in the city of Shenzhen.
