The R&D Group pursues environmental activities under the slogan of "Environment conscious R&D for the future."
Cherishing the natural environment is a long-held Japanese tradition, and also a policy of Central Research Laboratory. When establishing the laboratory in 1942, Mr. Namihei ODAIRA, founder of Hitachi, Ltd., gave instructions to avoid cutting the trees. This policy has been adhered to by succeeding General Managers.
Located within a natural setting, Hitachi Research Laboratory provides its researchers with a complete research environment and comfortable living conditions as they tackle new fields and new technologies to build the society of the future. lt actively promotes international activities including international conferences, joint international research, and the receiving of overseas researchers.
