Overview of Research and Development

Objectives of the Association

In Japan, citizens, private sector organizations, financial institutions, and local governments are participating in projects that lead to the conservation and creation of environmental values in coastal areas, but these endeavors are often not being implemented efficiently and effectively.

To solve this issue, the Japan Blue Economy (JBE) Association aims to promote research and development of technologies and methods necessary to revitalize projects that will help conserve and restore coastal areas through close cooperation among researchers, engineers, and practitioners in various fields and capacities.

Means of Achieving the Objectives—the Organic Linkage of Four Methodologies

We believe that the significance of the JBE lies in organically linking four methodologies (scientific, technical, social science, and economic) and promoting collaborative research.
