Center for Fundamental Research and Development

  • Network Center for Earthquake, Tsunami and Volcano

    We maintain and operate the high-sensitivity seismic observation network, broadband seismic observation network, volcano observation network, and seafloor tsunami and earthquake observation network, while also carrying out research and development.

  • Center for Comprehensive Management of Disaster Information

    We gather, organize and archive information and resources regarding science and technology for disaster risk reduction, while developing technologies for their usage and application.

  • Center for Advanced Research Facility

    To innovate science and technology in the field of disaster risk reduction, we oversee the utilization of the large-scale experimental facilities which can reproduce various natural conditions. We also promote open science conducive to disseminating experimental results.

  • Innovation Center for Meteorological Disaster Mitigation

    Bringing together personnel, information and technology from industry, academia and government, we promote R&D oriented toward social impementation of research results through the systemization of prediction technologies for meterological disasters, and performance evaluation/standardization of mesurement technologies related to disaster risk reduction.

  • Center for Integrated Volcano Research

    We observe volcanos to detect transition in activity and to predict disasters, and implement intergrated R&D with the aim of providing society with technology that contributes to volcano disaster countermeasures.

  • Research Center for Enhancing Metropolitan Resilience
  • Research Center for National Disaster Resilience

    We promote the SIP 2nd “Enhancement of National Resilience against Natural Disasters” in cooperation with related ministries and other organizations. We aim to realize the “Society 5.0” during disasters through the research and development of new technologies utilizing satellites, AI, and big data analysis, and implementation of the results in the government and municipalities.
