Application Guidelines for Humanosphere Science Research

The Research Institute for Sustainable Humanosphere of Kyoto University (hereafter, referred to as RISH) is promoting advanced and combined research on the five missions of “1: Environmental Diagnosis and Regulation of Circulatory Function”, “2: Advanced Development of Science and Technology towards a Solar Energy Society”, “3: Sustainable Space Environments for Humankind”, “4: Development and Utilization of Wood-based Sustainable Materials in Harmony with the Human Living Environment”, and “5: Quality of the Future Humanosphere” regarding the most recent issues concerning the survival of the human race. In order to promote these missions on humanosphere, RISH is publicly recruiting those who can take part in joint research on humanosphere science known as “Humanosphere Science Research” with the points below. We hope to receive many applications.
