The International Telecommunication Union and Waseda University of Tokyo have established a research centre at the ITU-Waseda ICT Centre to support work in the area of radio communications, particularly in the fields of radio frequency spectrum, digital broadcasting, mobile services and regulatory issues.

The centre will also conduct a series of research projects. One such project will focus on the use of broadband mobile interactive communication systems in public safety, security and emergency response for situations such as earthquakes and terrorist attacks. The centre will also launch a research project to develop content and applications for mobile telephony “beyond 3G” (third-generation mobile technologies).
