P&I LAB. Technology

The P&I LAB. is a facility for creating new value while collaborating with others from the starting point of printing and information technology—DNP’s strengths.

Oriented toward research and development, the P&I LAB. aims to create new products that realize printing and information innovations by making its facilities available for discussions on R&D projects, expanding new networks of collaborators and bringing in ideas and technologies from outside DNP.

Areas of Collaboration

DNP considers the following to be areas of collaboration: DNP technology, microfabrication, precision coating, post-processing, planning and design, information processing, material development, evaluation and analysis. These are the basis for the expansion of DNP’s four growth areas: Knowledge and Communication, Food and Healthcare, Lifestyle and Mobility and Environment and Energy.

Knowledge and Communication

DNP will provide value for nurturing culture and supporting people’s lives through comfortable communications.

Food and Healthcare

Amid a shift in global demographics, including the ongoing decline in birthrates in Japan’s super-aging society, DNP will provide new value that helps people maintain their health and high standard of well-being.
