International Education / Research

更新日: 2023/04/03

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. In fiscal year 2019, We conducted 51 international collaborations. A total of 157 RISH members and graduate students visited overseas institute while a total of 155 foreign scientists visited 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 annual international symposiums and schools. Innovative Humanosphere Science is also promoted by employing overseas researchers at the Global Sustainable Science Unit. In addition, RISH and Indonesian National Research and Innovation Agency (BRIN) have co-organized the Humanosphere Science School (HSS) since 2008, the International Symposium for Sustainable Humanosphere (ISSH) since 2011, and the Sustainable Development Seminar (SDS) since 2017.

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 5 scientists every year. We also encourage young scientists to participate. About 8 foreign post-doctoral fellows have visited RISH under the “JSPS Postdoctoral Fellowship for Foreign Researchers”. Additionally, we accept approximately 25 foreign graduate students every year.
