On April 16, 2021, Sendai City, in cooperation with Tohoku University, which has advanced technology, compiled the "Sendai City x Tohoku University Super City Concept" and applied for the Super City type The National Strategic Special Zones, for which the Government was inviting proposals.
The Super City is intended to be a "whole city of the future" that will implement bold regulatory and institutional reforms, as well as take the lead in realizing future lifestyles through data collaboration in multiple fields and the provision of cutting-edge services.
In the midst of fears of a rapid population decline and the concentration of population in Tokyo in the future, we will make use of the Super City type National Strategic Special Zone system as one of the measures to achieve sustainable economic growth in Sendai.

Role of Tohoku University
Tohoku University’s Aobayama Campus will be the origin for a new Smart
City concept. We will use the university’s knowledge in research and technology
to create innovative models and improved business opportunities toward
a sustainable, green and resilient future. The Science Park on campus will
serve as a hub for community co-creation and university-launched ventures,
where people can freely contribute in their own way to develop new social
values and share ideas toward a better life for everybody. Subsequent to
a successful implementation of these new ideas on Aobayama Campus, demonstrated
Smart City concepts will be expanded to each of Tohoku University’s campuses
within Sendai City, before finally being provided as viable improvements
and innovations for people in the communities.
