In 2015, under the new business "Global standard Wellbeing Research Campus for the creation of new industries by innovation of social system and technology” hosted by The Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST), Keio University, as a core institution, proposed the idea of "Wellbeing Research Campus: Creating new values through technological and social innovation" in collaboration with Kawasaki City, Kanagawa Prefecture, Yokohama City and Ota City, universities and research institutions (Tokyo University, Tokyo Institute of Technology, Yokohama City University) and companies (FUJIFILM Corporation, CYBERDYNE Inc). This program was adopted as feasibility study business on November 26th 2015 and was officially selected on September 29th 2016. Research complex supports the construction of a mechanizm producing continuous scientific and technological innovations in the regions where universities, research institutes and companies are strategically integrated. At the same time, the new seeds born from the mechanizm are adopted as new business ideas and will be used to construct such structures like to nurture entrepreneurs, all together work as global hub to aim for "A More Attractive Way of Life (Wellbeing)".
目標 The activities at this pioneering Wellbeing Research Campus will address the unprecedented global challenges associated with "super aging societies" by playing a leading role in improving the wellbeing of people all over the world. Notably, the major goal of this program is to establish a global research complex hub to create knowledge and services for attractive and rich lives.
Global Wellbeing Innovator Regions are the driving forces of innova:on which are accumulated from research teams and research ins:tutes leading the world.
The cutting edge information infrastructure by healthcare ICT and data-science accelerates the wellbeing research
Regions where people, goods, intelligence, and funds circulate autonomously and continuously.
Creation of new value and industry through innovation of technology and social system as a mission, integrate life science, information, manufacturing, organically link excellent research results from different fields by integrated data science and accelerate technological innovation and social implementation to create new fields and new industries and dedicate to the society.
The objectives is to create world-class innovation and build complex innovation promotion base (research complex) by integrated development of cutting edge research development, commercialization of the results and nurturing of the professionals.
This program is a program in which the players of industry, academia, government officials, and financial institutions gathered in the area will collaborate to foresee how the areas and the social values will come together in the next 5 years and 10years as one of the “vision”. And aim to contribute to the region creation by growth and development of complex innovation promotion base that integratedly deploy global development of cutting edge research development by fusion of different industries, commercialization of the results and nurture of professionals.

Based on the vision of the social implementation of the outcomes and development of the regional industries, this program identifies key components of the features. The program will Integrate research and development capabilities in and outside the region to the base, leading to demonstration and practical application. (The region expends more than the same amount of national expenditure)
