Saito Life Science Park >> About Saito LSP >> Profile

Saito (International Culture Park) is an urban development project being undertaken through the cooperative efforts of public and private organizations. The basic aim of the project is to create an urban community in which people live in harmony with nature. The facilities included in the project will focus on research and development in the life sciences, and on international cultural and academic study and exchange.
The project is envisioned as a new type of community that addresses some of the world's emerging social issues and trends, such as internationalization, the aging of society, and the information age. The project focuses on these seven basic aims while bringing a visionary new urban community to metropolitan Osaka.

Saito Life Science Park (Saito LSP) aims to become the hub of the Northern Osaka bio-medical cluster. Many pharmaceutical firms have traditionally concentrated in Osaka and a number of Bio-Medical research institutes including Osaka University are situated in the surrounding of Saito Life Science Park. This concentration bestows a unique advantage on Osaka. Saito Life Science Park plans to promote research activity with this advantage and to activate this area through industry-university cooperation.
