Our purpose is to contribute to reinforcement and development of human resources and to development in the wind engineering field by sharing world leading knowledge in this field and providing unique research facilities. We have set up the Joint Usage/Research Center Steering Committee in the Wind Engineering Research Center to achieve the purpose. The chairman is the director of WERC, and he is supported by 10 external members and 8 TPU members (including chairman). Research themes will be judged and the steering committee will play a role in ensuring smooth running of the research center.
