The Ikaga Research Laboratory of Keio University’s System Design Engineering Department conducts research on the core issue of sustainability in terms of both architecture and urban planning. The group examines how this informs both the design of domestic environments to actively promote health, and urban environments conducive to a low-carbon approach. Currently the lab is focusing on three main themes: health, intellectual productivity, and low-carbon.
Regarding current network technology, many researchers focus on how to improve network efficiency. By contrast, at Keio University, the Kaneko Laboratory, in the Department of Information and Computer Science (Faculty of Science and Technology), is doing research to construct next-generation network environments from the viewpoint of applications.
The Takao Laboratory of Keio University’s Faculty of Science and Technology Department of Applied Chemistry is engaged in the research and development of artificially creating various organic compounds extracted from natural sources.
