From a devastating earthquake to a brighter futureKobe Biomedical Innovation Cluster
On January 17, 1995, the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake struck Kobe. Severely damaged and realizing anew the preciousness of life, Kobe pledged to not simply reconstruct itself in economic terms but to do so by becoming a place where life is cherished above all. The city thus launched the project to develop a prime hub of healthcare research and related services.Kobe Biomedical Innovation Cluster Top page
