CUREE-Kajima Joint Research Program

Spanning over two decades, the CUREE-Kajima Research Program was a joint venture with the Kajima Corporation of Japan. This inter-university collaborative effort was initiated by CUREe's founding President, Professor Wilfred Iwan and then President of Kajima Corporation, Dr. Takuji Kabori. The studies that resulted from this research program covered a wide range of engineering topics and were the product of extensive collaborative work by researchers in both the U.S. and Japan.
