Research in Japan

Japanese invention is esteemed all over the world. It is a country renowned for originality and innovative design and is consequently responsible for a high percentage of patents registered worldwide. Certainly, the Japanese economy relies upon constant research and product development to compensate for its lack of natural resources. This, in itself, means much Japanese research is now environmentally focussed: discovering alternative fuels and cultivating sustainable, renewable energies.

Primarily, however, Japan is a leader in consumer electronics, the automobile industry, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology, all industries which require constant development and innovation. Research experienced an unprecedented boom in the mid-1980s whereby the Japanese government spent more capital upon research than the USA and producing more engineers than in every other country (except the USA). Today, Japan remains productive in the field of engineering, with 63 ‘Colleges of Technology’ educating students from secondary school age in numerous engineering fields, such as electronic, information systems and civil engineering. Although slightly less prolific in ‘basic research’, three of Japan’s Universities (Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka) are listed in the Top 50 Universities in the World and these institutions produce many prestigious academic journals in the fields of both science and the humanities. The publication of such research allows other experts to judge the relevance and worth of the work, and establish its incorporation into methodology, production, or practice.
