RIKEN Information R&D and Strategy Headquarters (R-IH)

Michihiko  Minoh(D.Eng.) Director: Michihiko Minoh (D.Eng.)

The RIKEN Information R&D and Strategy Headquarters (R-IH), is an organization to promote and operate of RIKEN’s information infrastructure and information research, strategically and collectively, that consists of the support departments and advanced、 cross-cutting research projects.

The Information Systems Department is implementing activities to realize the ICT Strategy during RIKEN's fourth mid-to-long term goal period. Furthermore, we are contributing to the promotion of Open Science throughout RIKEN by the Infrastructure Research and Development Division. At two projects, one promotes developmental research on data science in the health and medical fields and on designing methodologies to solve social issues via data science, and another promotes R&D for the social implementation of next-generation robots, which are constructively demonstrated from computational elucidation of human mind, especially recognition.

Information Systems Division

The Information Systems Division’s primary function is to provide IT support throughout RIKEN. An Information and Technology Integrated Strategy Council and its various committees deliberate, draft, and implement information systems strategies, and plan, construct, manage, and provide user support for RIKEN’s information systems infrastructure (including the IT systems for administrative staff). This division is also responsible for implementing cybersecurity measures, setting policies and drafting guidelines for information ethics, as well as acting promptly when incidents do occur.
