The Research Center for Industrial Culture (RCIC) is an organization attached to IAMAS whose mission is to contribute to the wider community by applying the products of our school's research to society through cultural activities and collaborations between government, business, and academia.

Joint and Commissioned Research

Research relating to the complete design of children-oriented lectures and practical teaching materials using AR

The complete design of the children-oriented course, the “junior space expert qualification course” was done in collaboration with IAMAS graduate designers and held at the Gifu-Kakamigahara Air and Space Museum. Furthermore, a learning and appreciation system that uses AR was set up through collaborating with Sorahaku, and we held discussions about an exhibition space for the children to learn experientially.

IAMAS Kodomo Daigaku

Since 2017, these workshops have been planned and held based on the philosophy of IAMAS for children in Ogaki, to improve their ability to practically use various technologies through unique expression experiences that use a variety of media. By extension, we also aim to nurture their ability to create new “things” both tangible and intangible.

Medicos Hiroba Media Lab Seisaku Workshop

A workshop was held in collaboration with IAMAS graduate designers in the “Minna no Mori'' Gifu Media Cosmos plaza, with the objective of creating a space for citizens that anybody can freely use known as the “Media Lab”. We conducted research on-site and based on the ideas proposed by participants it led to the production of fixtures to be actually used in the Media Lab.

Collaborations between Industry, Schools, and Government / Discussions about Local Collaboration

At IAMAS, as we deepen our research into local culture and information science, we contribute to the local community with the results of our collaborative research. We do this by cooperating with businesses, local government, cultural / research organizations, NPO's, and other organizations. As an organization attached to IAMAS, the Research Center for Industrial Culture supports the establishment of research agreements starting with discussions about collaboration, coordinating with faculty and the Projects.
