SciREX Center

The development of the SciREX Program called for an establishment of the SciREX Center in 2014 to coordinate all the SciREX activities among the member centers and stakeholders, and reflect the activity results on the government policies. The Center, located at the National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies (GRIPS), works as the HUB of the SciREX program (See the SciREX participation chart). It promotes co-evolution of policy formation and policy research and provides opportunities for the policymaking stakeholders and researchers to share information and network through seminars, symposia and workshops.

The SciREX Center currently carries 5 research projects (JFY2019-2020) as below, designated by the Japanese Government. The details of these projects can be obtained here.

  • - Examination of "Foresight and Impact Analysis Method" in Emerging and Interdisciplinary Science Fields and Formation of Networks
  • - Effective Use of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Research Results
  • - Analysis of mechanism for strengthening the base for creating innovation, by use of SciREX Policymaking Intelligent Assistance System (SPIAS)
