Emerging technologies are advancing at unprecedented speeds, changing the world as they blur the boundaries between the economic, social and political spheres.
The Center for the Fourth Industrial Revolution Japan (C4IR Japan) is the first Center to open outside of the United States, in partnership with Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) and the Asia Pacific Institute (API).
Part of the World Economic Forum's global network of Centers, it will co-design, pilot, test and iterate innovative policy frameworks with the Japanese government, global business leaders, start ups, international organizations and civil society.
We’re not just developing new ideas – we’re implementing them across the globe at the pace demanded by technological change.
As a leader, expert or innovator, you may have great ideas for the Fourth Industrial Revolution governance. But you can’t make global change alone.
From artificial intelligence to precision medicine, we aim to unlock the potential of cutting edge technologies to transform society.
