In 2020, Waseda University completed constructing the Research Innovation Center (Building 121), a new research and development building in the research and development center area of Waseda Campus, in order to establish a research environment and research support capabilities for promoting world-leading collaborative research between industry and academia. The building has two floors below ground and six above, with a total floor area of approximately 18,536.98 m2. The total construction cost was around 10 billion yen.
At this research and development building, Waseda University will promote field-type innovative activities that put world-leading collaborative industry-academia research into practice, while also engaging in creating new industries, including venture companies. It will also aim to realize social value creation as the third role of the university alongside education and research.
