Tokyo – April 1, 2014 – Nikkei Business Publications (President & CEO: Kohei Osada; Tokyo) today unveiled its fully-renovated technology web portal under a new name Nikkei Technology Online.
Succeeding the core concept of the former Tech-On! for “Supporting Japanese engineers and researchers”, the new Nikkei Technology Online provides contents placing a strong emphasis on cross-industrial partnerships among such fields as automobiles, health care, social infrastructure, and energy. Based on technological applications, what fields will have possibilities to develop new types of services? Via the specialized websites focusing on social devices, megawatt-scale solar business, and digital health, Nikkei BP already provides updates on such new fields, and the addition of this new portal will further accelerate exploration in new fields of technology.
