Izumiotsu-City’s “Ability Enhancement Experimental City”

Room301, 3F,(45-22 Asahicho,, Izumiotsu-shi, Osaka)
予約フォームへ

The objective of the Ability Enhancement Experimental City Working Group is to verify the effect of studies, technologies, remedies, and products for human ability and recovery and the maintenance and improvement of physical and cognitive functions, as well as to promote R&D, commercialization and international collaboration, and to consider the establishment of regional clusters.

The working group not only promotes health enhancement in the field of western medical science, but also that of other approaches to healthcare, in areas such as food, exercise, healing, sleep, alternative medical care, integrated medical care, etc., co-creating their promotion with other regions through civic collaboration, public collaboration, and medical cooperation.

The proposed technology and knowledge are studied to further explore services, products, and opportunities for innovation, collaboration, or commercialization. To enhance the function of the body and cognition, robotics and AI will be combined, respectively, with healthcare or alternative healthcare knowledge.

In addition, as a regional cluster, it aims to consider the establishment of a “living lab” and assistance towards extending the “healthy life expectancy” of citizens, workers, and college and pre-college students by providing a comfortable environment, attracting related research institutions and industry, and promoting the local industry.

Izumiotsu-City has become increasingly active as an Ability Enhancement Experimental City, and there are plans to establish a regional cluster at Izumiotsu Civic Hall in the form of public-private partnerships.

Through this collaboration, the group will seek to implement various approaches in Japan and overseas involving ability-related technology, products, services, and human resources produced by the Izumiotsu brand, to enable their contribution to sustainable regional economic activities and SDGs, through which humankind can achieve healthy living.

what is the global health initiative (GHI)?

サンプル
The Global Health Initiative aims to be a platform for information exchange, cooperation, and activity support among sectors, clusters, associated organizations, and support organizations involved in global health, in a broad sense.
“Global health” is a wide-ranging field that spans both universal health coverage (UHC) initiatives and the international expansion of health-related businesses. The activities in each of these two areas are important in their own right, but their mutual cooperation is also expected to yield new markets and possibilities.
