Aalborg University in northern Jutland has opened a new division of its Center for Teleinfrastructure (CTIF) in Japan
Aalborg University in northern Jutland has opened a new division of its Center for Teleinfrastructure (CTIF) in Japan, the university writes in a press release. For a number of years CTIF has been Aalborg University's international spearhead in research in mobile and communication technology. The aim is to establish a global network, and the university has so far established CTIF divisions in Rome (Italy), Kolkata (India) and now in Yokusuko Research Park about 60 km from Tokyo.
 
Earlier this year when the plan to open the centre was announced, Aalborg University said that the initial aim of the centre is to establish a close research collaboration with Japanese industrial companies with a focus on commercialisation of research results. "The establishment of CTIF centers is part of our globalisation strategy, which is expressed in many ways, but fundamentally it is about exchanging knowledge with the rest of the world," Prorector Hanne Kathrine Krogstrup said.
 
Japanese interest in making connections with CTIF has been substantial. The initiative to establish a centre in Yokusuko Research Park came from Japan, and the city of Yokusuko is paying the rent for the first two years.
 
CTIF, which is headed by Professor Ramjee Prasad, employs 150 staff conducting research at a high international level to enhance the technological development of modern wireless communication technologies and teleinfrastructures. CTIF also collaborates with industry on research and development of new types of networks, devices and services.
