R&D Structure


Fujifilm’s Research and Development (R&D) structure consists of two axes: the “Divisional Laboratories,” which are directly under the control of each business divisions and conduct R&D directly related to the businesses, and the “Corporate Laboratories,” which are responsible for the R&D of fundamental technologies from a group-wide perspective. As for the R&D pursued by the two laboratory groups, not only do the members of both groups gather to discuss and collaborate in their respective fields, but also they regularly hold technical discussions based on future business directions at the Technology Strategy Meeting chaired by the CTO, involving the management and the directors of each laboratory.

Advanced Research Laboratories, hubs that fuse technology and knowledge

The Fujifilm Advanced Research Laboratories was established in April 2006 in Kaisei-machi, Kanagawa Prefecture, as an “open venue” that eliminates barriers between technical fields and organizations, aiming to conduct original, cutting-edge research with an eye to the future.

Under the concept of “‘New value creation through fusion and creation,’” researchers, businesspeople and designers from various fields confront each other and engage in active discussions and projects to create new and differentiated technologies and value.
