岡山縣 / 國立
This institute was founded (originally as the Ohara Institute for Agricultural Research) in 1914 by Magosaburo Ohara for the research of agriculture and its application towards the improvement of farming. During 1952 and 1953, the Institute's ownership was transferred to Okayama University. Then, after changing its name to the Institute for Agricultural Biology, in 1988 it was reorganized and renamed the Research Institute for Bioresources.
In June, 2009, Japan's Ministry of Education certified the Institute as a "Center of Excellence " in the fields of plant genetic resources and plant stress science. Then, in April 2010 the Institute was reorganized as the Institute of Plant Science and Resources with a joint research core in plant stress science, a joint research core for future crops, and a barley and wild plant resource center. These three divisions support 5 research units (atmospheric stress, soil stress, biotic stress, genetic resources, and applied genomics) where researchers from throughout Japan and around the world work together to advance basic research for creating viable crops even when in degraded environmental conditions.
This center was established in April 2005 to promote new research and development in the field of waste management studies. It trains specialists in waste management and environmental technology evaluation and provides technological cooperation and information through partnerships among industrial, educational, and government agencies on a national level. The three pillars of the Center's programs are Education of Solid Waste Management, Research on Regional Sound Recycling-based Society Systems, and Solid Waste Research in Developing Countries. The Center comprehensively examines aspects of waste management for the support of recycling-based societies in Japan and the Asia-Pacific.
This center integrates the specialized work related to environmental preservation and safety at Okayama University. It was established to promote sound environmental management and work safety practices on campus. The center's work consists of environmental control duties such as waste water monitoring, waste management including that of hazardous waste, environmental management, and the safety management of harmful chemical substances used in workplaces and laboratories, as well as related education and research.
