Ocean Policy Research Institute of the Sasakawa Peace Foundation

The Ocean Policy Research Institute, The Sasakawa Peace Foundation was established as the Japan Foundation for Shipbuilding Advancement in 1975. Along with expansion of its activities, however, in 1990 the name of the foundation was changed to the Ship & Ocean Foundation. In 2002, it organized within itself the Institute for Ocean Policy, SOF, and from 2005 began operating under the name of the Ocean Policy Research Foundation. Following its merger with The Sasakawa Peace Foundation, in April of 2015, it is now known as The Ocean Policy Research Institute, The Sasakawa Peace Foundation, and actively works towards the comprehensive management and sustainable development of the ocean.

From its beginnings in the promotion of shipbuilding and marine technology development, the Ocean Policy Research Institute now carries out research and think tank activities from both policy and science perspectives, aiming at the comprehensive management and sustainable development of the ocean so as to address a wide range of ocean problems and issues in a comprehensive and cross-disciplinary manner.
