J dropcapapan’s University of Tsukuba, Saga City, and Saga University have signed an “Agreement on the Utilization of Algae Biomass and its Research and Development in Saga City.” The agreement defines the three party’s cooperation for the Saga region to take advantage of algae biomass, and to cooperate on the research and development that would lead to the creation of new industries.

Saga City was selected as a Biomass Industrial City by the Japanese government in November 2014. The city has been expected to play a key role in developing the algae industry since then. Having little experience in the field of algae, the city decided to pursue the partnership agreement with the two universities, seeking their technical cooperation.

Vice President Yasuo Miake of the University of Tsukuba, Saga City Mayor Toshiyuki Hideshima, and President Kohji Miyazaki of Saga University attended the signing ceremony.

A symposium titled “Toward the Creation of Domestic Resources and Industries” was held after the signing ceremony, including a panel discussion on “Creation of New Algae Industries based on Inter-University Cooperation.” Vice President Miake and Assistant Professor Masaki Yoshida of the Faculty of Life and Environmental Sciences proposed that the university build up a more effective system to promote cooperation with industries.
