The KAITEKI Institute, Inc. is a global research institute focused on meeting 21st century challenges in energy, the environment, and healthcare.
"Kaiteki," which traditionally means "comfort" or "ease" in Japanese, was chosen for the Institute's name to represent the global quality of life that will be made possible through sustainable technologies and through breakthrough scientific advances in human healthcare.
The Institute will not only fund the highest quality of scientific and engineering research around the world—it will also identify and articulate future societal trends, needs, and challenges, which will be used to set subsequent research targets.
The KAITEKI Institute will propose solutions based on promising research results as new technology platforms within the research arms or businesses of the Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings Group.
Research and investigation into the needs of future society, development of business concepts that will serve those needs, and operation and management of contact research for key technologies supporting the businesses.
The Institute will help make society healthier, more comfortable, and more affluent by supporting long-term R&D and business strategy for the Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings Group, while taking advantage of a global scientific and information network.

McGill University is one of Canada's best-known institutions of higher learning and one of the leading research-intensive universities. With students coming to McGill from about 140 countries, our student body is the most internationally diverse of any medical-doctoral university in Canada.
The oldest university in Montreal, McGill was founded in 1821 from a generous bequest by James McGill, a prominent Scottish merchant. Since that time, McGill has grown from a small college to a bustling university with two campuses, 11 faculties, some 300 programs of study, and more than 32,000 students. The University partners with four affiliated teaching hospitals to graduate over 1,000 health care professionals each year.
The Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (FAES) is at the forefront of advances in applied bioscience, food, nutritional and environmental sciences research and teaching. Located on the Macdonald Campus at the western tip of the island of Montreal, the Faculty is centred within one of the highest concentrations of high-tech activity in Canada. The FAES offers unique multidisclpinary programs that bring together health, environment, food and nutrition, bioproducts, biotechnology and the agriculture sectors.
