Towards earthquake disaster mitigation of buildings and urban structures, and promotion of international cooperation

About us

Everyone should have the anxiety about the safety of the city and the building where he lives under earthquake and tsunami. In order to achieve disaster risk reduction and reduce the anxiety, researchers and engineers must send correct information and knowledge to society about the safety.

Earthquake Disaster Engineering Research Laboratory will conduct research and development in earthquake disaster mitigation for cities and buildings and disseminate the knowledge to society. In addition, we will promote international cooperation to contribute disaster mitigation research not only in Japan but around the world.
