For centuries Okinawa has been a hub of exchange and trade. OIST is revitalizing this proud tradition by establishing a hub of scientific and technological excellence at the heart of the Asia Pacific Region.

The Technology Development and Innovation Center is the technology development and commercialization hub at OIST, leveraging the university's researchers, world-class infrastructure, interdisciplinary environment, and culture of risk-taking to transform technologies from the laboratory into innovations that have social and economic benefit.
