To further accelerate the development speed and address the needs of increasingly diverse research themes, KIOXIA Corporation not only promotes collaboration between in-house divisions and laboratories but also undertakes R&D projects in collaboration with universities, technical communities, and research institutes both in Japan and abroad. We also apply the results of these activities to a broad range of products and R&D themes while capturing ideas from wide communities.
