The City of Kobe started the "Kobe Medical Industry Development Project" (now called the "Kobe Biomedical Innovation Cluster" or KBIC) as one of the earthquake restoration projects to recover the economy of Kobe, which was severely damaged by the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake on January 17, 1995.

Recognising anew the "importance of life," the City of Kobe was determined to promote a new industry that would protect the lives of citizens and contribute to international society. Now, state-of-the-art research institutions such as RIKEN and the K computer have gathered in the Kobe Biomedical Innovation Cluster to form one of the largest biomedical clusters in Japan. KBIC's activities include basic research to clinical applications and industrialization (practical application, commercialization, and expansion of sales channels) related to a variety of themes including treatment, diagnosis, prevention, caregiving, welfare and others in the fields of pharmaceuticals, medical equipment, regenerative medicine and more.
