Construction of next-generation infrastructure using innovative materials～Realization of a safe and secure society that can coexist with the Earth for centuries～
- Project Period
Based at Kanazawa Institute of Technology, the Organization for Advancement of COI Research (COI-KIT), is adopted by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology Japan (MEXT) under its COI Science and Technology based Radical Innovation and Entrepreneurship Program (COI STREAM), are working on research toward realizing next-generation infrastructure systems.
The ideas of "new innovative materials" and "innovative manufacturing processes" are fused to develop "new innovative structural materials" that are lightweight, high strength, long lasting, easy process and mass producible at low costs, to replace conventional iron and concrete. These are incorporated into next‐generation infrastructural systems with an aim of reducing social costs and creating new values as a means to realize a society that spans over centuries, which is safe, secure, and maintains its values over long periods.
