Disaster Mitigation Research Building
The Disaster Mitigation Collaborative Research Center is to develop human resources who are engaged in disaster prevention and mitigation and research disaster mitigation to prepare for massive earthquakes under collaboration with industry-academia-government. In March 2014, the construction of Disaster Mitigation Research Building was completed and it was opened as the Disaster Mitigation Collaborative Research Center! The entire building of this center itself is a vibration experiment apparats with artificial earthquake shaker and seismic isolation system, which is the first attempt in the world.
