2010 Japan Prize to Honor Scientists and Researchers in Industrial Production/Production Technology and Biological Production/Environment Fields
Date:12/1/2008

ot seen before in the history of mankind. Nevertheless, there are still many people in the world who have not reaped the benefits of this prosperity. It has also become clear that we must take into account the fragility of the earth's environment in our pursuit of science and technology. In view of these circumstances, we must continue to strive for further innovation in production technology for the truly prosperous future of mankind.

Achievement eligible:

The 2010 Japan Prize will be awarded to honor achievement that brings about remarkable progress in science and technology in the field of industrial production and production technology and that makes an outstanding contribution to society by improving the safety or convenience of the lives of people or by overcoming poverty through the creation of new products or industries, or improvement in productivity.

Area of studies II: biology, agriculture, and medicine

Fields eligible for the award: biological production and environment

Background and rationale:

The existence of mankind has depended on the earth's biological resources in various forms in the past and will continue to do so. However, the earth's environment which supports our biological resources has been rapidly deteriorating. Furthermore, while innovations in technology have dramatically increased our capacity to produce food, the world population has been growing at an explosive rate and is surpassing the growth of the production capacity. In addition to protecting the environment and ensuring biodiversity, sustainable production is essential.
