NIES Center for Material Cycles and Waste Management Research (CMW) has strived to strengthen research partnerships with overseas governmental organizations, research institutions and universities since its establishment in 2001.
Through conclusion of Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with various institutions, CMW has constantly expanded research fields and target regions. CMW's research network continues to grow through implementation of various programs/projects collaboratively with these institutions. CMW's collaborative work includes joint research activities, policy advisories and capacity building activities such as training workshops and seminars.
CMW also receives researchers and visitors from abroad. The number of visitors to CMW exceeds 100 a year. Our researchers welcome you and provide you with needed information and their insights in their respective research fields.
The Collaboration Research Laboratory in Thailand, launched in 2012, has also catalyzed our policy and research collaboration with various institutions in Southeast Asian countries. Transfer of appropriate technologies and suitable systems on waste management to/in the region have been facilitated through the implementation of joint projects on solid waste and wastewater management.
