We aim to contribute to local development and revitalization through our interactions with the local community. We are also engaged in activities aimed at advancing the life sciences industry through education and academic support.

Education of the next generation

Every year, Takara Bio executives and employees guest lecture at local universities about the latest trends and future outlook in topics such as gene therapy and regenerative medicine from a corporate and business perspective. We also support students in career planning by dispatching new hires who volunteered to visit their alma maters to participate in opportunities to discuss topics such as their current job duties, why they joined Takara Bio, and how they feel about their work.

 

We even visit local elementary schools and give presentations that explain our business to students in an easy-to-understand way. These efforts are popular among community members and they have expressed their hope that we continue them.

Contribution to the promotion of local communities and culture

We support local communities through activities such as local cleanup events, and also contribute relief funds and hold volunteer activities to support those affected by major disasters.
