Re-Inventing Japanese University Project

Consortium for International Human Resource Development for Disaster-Resilient Countries



Kyoto University “Re-Inventing Japanese Project” is being conducted from 2011.

The main thrust of this project is to put into practice the valuable experiences that we have gained in the process of recovery from the Great East Japan Earthquake that occurred on March 11, 2011. We are planning to implement the following activities in mutual interchange with a world development consortium created among the cooperating universities in ASEAN countries where natural disasters often occur.

We plan to develop a collaborative educational program on disaster reduction, disaster restoration, disaster recovery, and disaster risk management in mutual interchange with ASEAN universities.

We plan to promote mutual interchanges and student exchanges. To do this, we plan on implementing a collaborative educational program whereby the cooperating schools accept credits from each school. We also plan to recommend that students take courses in other countries within the consortium as well.

We plan to create an environment where young researchers from Japan and the ASEAN cooperating universities can undertake collaborative education and where young researchers can pass on the experiences they gained in their visits to the disaster-stricken areas when they return to their home countries.
