    Travels to Japan

    Since 2012 there have been close contacts to Japan, which have been continuously expanded in delegation trips to Japan in 2012, 2014 and 2015. Through the InterSpin+ funding project of the former CFK Valley e. V., activities have been significantly intensified since the end of 2017 and a total of 5 trips to Japan have taken place in the period from December 2017 to December 2019. An overview of these trips can be found on this page.

    Innovative Composite Materials Research and Development Center (ICC) of the Kanazawa Institute of Technology in Ishikawa

    The ICC Research and Development Center strives for cross-sector, interdisciplinary technology integration through joint research with many research partners and companies. Through the joint use of knowledge and technologies for the production and use of composite materials, an innovative, application-oriented product development according to the Open Innovation concept takes place. Besides technology development, the aim of the activities is the best possible networking with Japanese and international partners in order to achieve joint value creation.

    Composite Highway Consortium (CHC)



    The Composite Highway Consortium with three composites centers (ICC, NCC, GCC) as the main actor regularly organizes the Composite Highway Convention. The consortium consists of eight public research institutions and private companies, whose core members are NCC of Nagoya University, ICC of the Kanazawa Institute of Technology and GCC of Gifu University. Its primary goal is to form the world’s largest hub for carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP), encompassing research and development, production, processing and assembly of CFRP’s. The Composite Highway Convention brings together all member organizations to share current activities and publish the latest product development results.

    National Composite Center (NCC) in Nagoya

    The National Composites Center (NCC) of Nagoya University was founded on the initiative of industry, academia and the Japanese government, to investigate and develop molding techniques for carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). The introduction of a large composite molding system including semi-finished product manufacturing and a large press enables the NCC to test and evaluate CFRP molding techniques with short cycle times on full-size components. The production technology established by the NCC is focused on the automotive sector and can be fed directly into the production lines. Based on these technologies, the National Composites Center (NCC) of Nagoya University successfully developed the world’s first lightweight thermoplastic CFRP chassis for passenger cars.


    Industrial Technology Center (ITC) of Fukui Prefecture



    The Fukui Industrial Technology Center functions as a comprehensive research and testing institute open to local industry, providing three main services: research and development, technical assistance and technology transfer. The field of research includes nanotechnology and materials.

    Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO)

    The Japanese foreign trade promotion organization JETRO supports companies for mutual trade and investment between Japan and the rest of the world. The CU has also worked closely with the organization to promote its activities, especially in Kanazawa. Delegation trips to Japan by German CU members were partly financially supported by JETRO, which greatly enhanced the exchange.
