11 of companies and research institutions and a university established,
“Resilience Research and Education Promotion Consortium” on December 2017.
In the field of resilience focused on as the outline including conventional risk management,
we would promote activities as a base of world’s knowledge and a core of education.
Activities of Consortiums and Associated Institutions
As society changes significantly, SECOM is working on building a new social infrastructure, the “ANSHIN Platform,” which provides security to livelihood and society in order to precisely address the diversifying needs of customers. Through participation in this consortium, SECOM can promote risk resilience and foster talent in cooperation with partners in industry, government, and academia sharing the same passion; and create new services which provide enduring peace of mind to an ever-changing society.
NEC brings together and integrates technology and expertise to create the ICT-enabled society of tomorrow. We collaborate closely with partners and customers around the world, orchestrating each project to ensure all its parts are fine-tuned to local needs. Every day, our innovative solutions for society contribute to greater safety, security, efficiency and equality, and enable people to live brighter lives.
Through this consortium, NEC would contribute to foster global human resources who can realize the brighter society.
3M Japan hopes to advance customer’s business further, to make daily life more comfortable, and to enrich tomorrow by our technologies, products and innovation. In the area of risk resilience, we have kicked off special project team to provide company-wide solutions for disaster preparedness and aged infrastructure. Through the participation to this consortium, we would contribute to make our society more resiliently by promoting our research and fostering human resources in cooperation with all partners.
Over the past 30 years, DRI has set the global stand and deployed the most advanced knowledge in more than 100 countries, with a focus on education about BCM: Business Continuity Management and professional certification. Japan is a disaster-prone country. We learn lessons from the many disasters that have occurred in the past, and think about how to survive and thrive. In the face of a changes climate, this strategy will help us to be a resilient country. We are proud to share our expertise with this consortium in the degree program and contribute to the development of Japan.
Central Research Institute of Electric Power Industry (CRIEPI) conducts advanced research of the risk and resilience fields related to energy and the environment in collaboration with members of the consortium and also cooperates in training human resources who can lead resilient energy and environmental systems in the degree program of University of Tsukuba.
The Research Institute of Science for Safety and Sustainability (RISS) at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) are engaged in research to reduce environmental and physical risk by appropriate use of chemical substances, materials and energy towards achieving a society harmonizing industry and the environment. Researchers of our research institute would participate in the Collaborative Graduate School Program established at the University of Tsukuba, and we would contribute to foster necessary human resources in the society harmonizing industry and the environment by collaborating with consorium member institutes including the University of Tuskuba.
National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Resilience (NIED) has been working on research and development in a wide range of fields including earthquake, volcano, meteorological disaster, snow and ice, disaster mitigation and integrated research, with the objective of “realization of a society resilient to disasters” by improving the level of science and technology for disaster risk reduction. To overcome national crisis disasters and keep Japan sustainable in the next century, we work on research and human resources development in the field of risk and resilience, cooperating with member organizations through this Consortium.
The University of Tsukuba, as an “Open Campus” to take lead role for University Reform, would collaborate with expert companies and research institutions in fields of Risk and Resilience, developing the knowledge of leading edge in Consortium, also implementing the knowledge to our degree program which has quality assurance, and would foster academic and global human resources who have rich skills.
