  • Greeting from Director of Wind Engineering Research Center, Steering Organization, Press release

  • Application of 2021 fiscal year collection started
  • Facilities and database of TPU available for Joint Usage/Research Center Program

  • Adopted research theme and research meetings of 2020 fiscal year

Tokyo Polytechnic University Wind Engineering Research Center was founded in 2000. Since then we have been actively engaged in educational and research-based activities and have been working together with domestic and overseas educational/research institutes. In 2003 we initiated the 21st Century Center of Excellence Program [Wind Effects on Buildings and Urban Environment], and in 2008 we initiated the Global Center of Excellence Program [New Frontier of Education and Research in Wind Engineering]. Through those programs we have amassed achievements in education and research.
In 2013 we were selected for the Joint Usage/Research Center (JURC) Program by MEXT as [Wind Engineering Research Center] and have been utilizing our facilities to actively promote more collaborative research projects based on past research results. Under the JURC Program, 13 specific research projects and 13 general research projects are currently going on..

2020.12.7 Notice about 2021 Fiscal Year Joint Usage/Research Application collection starts

2020.11.24 Obituary
"Professor Giovanni Solari of the University of Genova has passed away. His achievements and contributions in the fields of wind engineering and structural engineering were countless. He was an advisory board member of our COE and GCOE programs for more than 10 years, and most recently, in 2019, he gave us a keynote speech at the International Workshop on Wind Effects on Buildings and Urban Environment held at TPU. May Professor Solari rest in peace.

2020.9.18 JURC Fellowships Program 2020 has been cancelled.

We would like to announce that unfortunately, the JURC Fellowships Program 2020 has been cancelled as a precaution against the global outbreak of COVID-19.
