Research Institute for Sustainable Humanosphere

International Education / Research

RISH research activity is spread all over the world. In addition to conducting many international collaborative programs, we open our inter-university research facilities, databases, and projects to the international community. We also contribute to scientific development in Asia and other areas.

International Collaborative Research Projects

We are dedicated to the promotion of international collaborative research. Currently, we are conducting over 50 international collaborations. Each year, roughly 120 RISH members and graduate students visit overseas institutes, while more than 50 foreign scientists visit RISH. Both the SICORP (JASTIP) project, which is linked to our Asian research node in Indonesia, and the SATREPS project, which is supported by JST and JICA, cultivate global human resources and help to launch research projects with developing countries.

International Cooperative Studies Using Collaborative Research Facilities

The Equatorial Atmosphere Radar in Indonesia and the Middle and Upper atmosphere (MU) radar, our biggest facility, have been accepting international applicants for inter-university collaborative programs. We promote internationalization of other large facilities, such as the Deterioration Organisms Laboratory (DOL) and Living-Sphere Simulation Field (LSF), to enhance the transfer of technology and higher education.

International Research Conferences and Schools

RISH organizes several international symposiums and schools annually. Moreover, innovative Humanosphere Science is also promoted by employing overseas researchers at the Global Sustainable Science Unit. Furthermore, RISH and Indonesian Institute of Science (LIPI)have annually co-organized the Humanosphere Science School (HSS)since 2008 and the International Symposium for Sustainable Humanosphere (ISSH), a joint research forum held with HSS since 2011.

Visiting Scientists from Foreign Countries

RISH established three positions for visiting scientists from foreign countries. This program started in 1986, and we are now hosting approximately 6 scientists every year. We also encourage young scientists to participate. More than five foreign post-doctoral fellows have visited RISH under the “JSPS Postdoctoral Fellowship for Foreign Researchers”. Additionally, we accept approximately 15 foreign graduate students every year.
