Ibaraki University undertakes research with a whole university approach to promote interaction between colleges and various sectors, and to encourage an unique cross-disciplinary research. In Ibaraki Prefecture, there are unique research facilities such as Tokai Village with a group of nuclear related facilities and Tsukuba Science City, and research efforts in cooperation with these facilities are our global strengths.
Deployment of Research to Form a Hub of Education and Research in the Area of Quantum Beam Science
This is an area of research that uses the experimental equipment at the Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC) in nearby Tokai Village and other quantum beam experiments to undertake basic research and applied research for industry. In collaboration with nearby research institutes and prominent overseas research organizations, we aim to achieve research that is world-class.
Strengthening and Regional Deployment of Climate Change Adaptation Science for the Mitigation of Disasters and the Realization of a Sustainable Society
Since its establishment in 2006, the Institute for Global Change Adaptation Science (ICAS) has acted as a hub for research and education into climate change adaptation science, undertaking research into impact assessment, technological development for adaptation and mitigation measures, and effectiveness assessment, and communicating its scientific findings to the world. We will further strengthen ICAS and deploy its outcomes regionally, to contribute to disaster mitigation and to the realization of a sustainable society.
