[U06-07] Activities of Japan Academic Network for Disaster Reductionwith Science Council of Japan
Science Council of Japan established new committee for promoting interdisciplinary cooperation of disaster reduction and disaster restoration on July 2015 and strengthened to help our activities. We are requested that we had better target various kinds of natural disasters.
As the successor of this association, we are going to establish “Japan Academic Network for Disaster Reduction” on January 9th, 2016. This network targets not only earthquakes but also natural disasters in general. We welcome newcomer academies of various fields. This network will deepen the cooperation between different academies from normal times. When large disaster occurs, this network works as emergency contact network between academies and government and society.
Science Council of Japan and Japan Academic Network for Disaster Reduction will collaborate across academies to promote multidisciplinary research for disaster reduction in the world.
Thus, Interdisciplinary collaboration is going to spread steadily. We hope that researchers and engineers will have more interest on other fields and proceed their research from comprehensive point of view, with filling the gaps of specialization.
