The 7th Asia Research Node Symposium on Humanosphere Science and The 10th Sustainable Development Seminar (December 21st 2022, Full Online Meeting)

Updated: 2022/12/20

The environment surrounding humans is rapidly changing with complicated interlinkages, threatening sustainable development and healthy living. There has been an increasing demand for reliable future projections based on an accurate understanding of current conditions of Humanosphere, and for the presentation of measures for solving the problems. To establish the Sustainable Humanosphere, international collaboration and expansion of Humanosphere Science on a global scale is important.

In 2016, Research Institute for Sustainable Humanosphere (RISH) launched a program called the Humanosphere Asia Research Node (ARN) to strengthen the hub functions of international collaborative research and fostering talented people who expand the field of Humanosphere Sciences internationally. ARN integrates our various facilities and human networks in ASEAN region and Japan for consolidating the international collaborative research on “Sustainable Humanosphere”. We have held a series of symposia on Humanosphere Science: the 1st ARN Symposium in Penang, Malaysia in collaboration with Universiti Sains, Malaysia (USM), the 2nd one in Uji, Japan,  the 3rd one in Taichung, Taiwan in collaboration with National Chung Hsing University (NCHU),  the 4th one in Nanjing, China in collaboration with Nanjing Forestry University (NFU), and the 5th one as ONLINE  event due to the unfolding coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and travel restrictions. Last year, the 6th symposium was held online as a joint program of “LAPAN-Kyoto University International Symposium for Equatorial Atmosphere“, “The 6th Asia Research Node Symposium on Humanosphere Science”, and “INternational Conference on Radioscience, Equatorial Atmospheric Science and Environment (INCREASE)”.

In 2022 RISH, Kyoto University, has been reorganized and its internal organization and management structure have been drastically reformed. Last year, many Indonesian Scientific Organizations including Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI) and Indonesian National Institute of Aeronautics and Space (LAPAN) were reorganized and integrated into the Indonesian Research and Innovation Agency (BRIN). In this regard, the 7th Asia Research Node Symposium on Humanosphere Science will be held on-line on December 21st (Wed), 2022 and bring together researchers and students with understanding the current status of both countries in scientific activities to achieve sustainable society. In addition, a session of this symposium will be held as the 10th Sustainable Development Seminar, a seminar that has been running for five years, providing young researchers and students with an overview of the current situation of science and society in Southeast Asia, mainly Indonesia. In this symposium, we aim to contribute to the establishment of new international joint researches, the expansion of the international research community, and the development of young international human resources, so that we can contribute to the establishment of sustainable society.
