ATR, Toray Construction, and the Israeli Start-up TEM Collaborate on a Joint Experiment to Measure the Effect of Stress Reduction by TOREFARM®― Further Utilization of Open Innovation Platform of the Keihanna Science City ―2019/05/23

Advanced Telecommunications Research Institute International (ATR) has been working on generating various joint projects on a global scale as part of the Keihanna Research Complex (Keihanna RC) project, by utilizing the “Keihanna Open Global Service Platform for Accelerated Co-Innovation (KOSAINN)”, an open innovation platform constructed by the Keihanna RC. ATR, Toray Construction Co., Ltd., (Toray Construction), and the Elegant Monkeys Ltd., (TEM), an Israeli start-up agreed to conduct a joint experiment to measure the effect of stress reduction through farming at a sand culture greenhouse called TOREFARM®. This project, one of the Keihanna RC’s global open innovation projects, aims to promote TOREFARM® by quantifying the efficiency of stress reduction at the greenhouse which has been empirically recognized. Based on the results of the pre-experiment conducted in 2018 by 7 companies from Israel and Silicon Valley in the US, ATR, Toray Construction, and TEM will conduct a more large-scaled and detailed experiments with local residents in the Keihanna Science City by using TEM’s AI technology that enables objective measurement of human emotional load level from their vital signs.
In the Keihanna RC, ATR will enhance the creation of an innovation ecosystem by expanding the KOSAINN to tackle business challenges and help commercialize new ideas rapidly through collaborations with various players in the Keihanna RC’s partnership network that spreads out in Japan and overseas.
