Overview

 The Global Survivability Studies (GSS) Program aims to produce “Super Doctors” who are world leaders dealing with safety and security issues including largescale natural disasters, man-made disasters and accidents, regional environment changes and food security. DPRI is collaborating with 9 graduate schools (Education, Economics, Science, Medicine, Engineering, Agriculture, Informatics, ASAFAS*1 and Global Environmental Studies), RISH and CSEAS*2 to implement a multidisciplinary 5-year graduate course that combines natural and social sciences. This program provides students with GSS lecture subjects and various learning opportunities, such as internships, field training, interdisciplinary seminars, and an international school. Students are also requested to plan and execute industry-university projects and international joint research project to experience roles of a project leader.

Strategic Young Researcher Overseas Visit Program for Accelerating Brain Circulation (Japan Society for the Promotion of Science)
Leading International Cooperative Research of Integrated Disaster Science on Evolving Natural Hazard

Overview

Focusing on the earthquake disasters incurred by the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami, as well as on extreme weather conditions, including torrential rainfall, floods and global warming, this project (FY2011-2013) promotes international cooperative research on natural hazards that can provide the basis for understanding huge and complex disasters. To meet this objective, we will send young researchers to overseas institutes/universities to participate in cooperative research on the mechanisms and impacts of natural disasters. Based on producing forefront research results, and through the leadership and cooperation of DPRI researchers, we strive to establish an integrated disaster science that can enhances resiliency to the extreme natural hazards for our increasingly advanced and complex society. In March 2013, an international symposium was held.
