Welcome to the website of study project Shouraizou

The Shouraizou study project performed an investigation into innovation in Japan. Shouraizou was more than a study tour to the land of the rising sun or a research study into great technical innovations in a wonderful country. Shouraizou offered an opportunity to see, experience and create a vision of the future.

About this website

This site is divided into three sections: Shouraizou, Students and Companies. The first section provides most of the basic information about the study project Shouraizou. The second one was particularly for (participating) students, but you can visit it to learn more of the work that was carried out by the students. Lastly, the section for companies indicate the opportunities Shouraizou had to offer Dutch and Japanese companies.

Although the project has already ended, we hope that the information on this website will be of interest to you. Particularly, you may consider visiting the report-download page. Please do not hesitate to contact us in case you have any questions, suggestions or remarks.
