The Challenge of Technological Innovation
In the JR East Group Management Vision V: Ever Onward, we have enhanced our efforts in pursing "extreme safety levels" by means such as "building a railway capable of withstanding natural disasters" and "development of railways that passengers can utilize reliably." We are also strongly promoting technological innovation in various fields where we put particular emphasis on "establishing energy and environmental strategies," "utilizing ICT," and "operating Shinkansen at faster speeds." It is the Research and Development Center of JR East Group that plays a key role in carrying out R&D for those goals.
