On February 22, the Kobe University CAMPUS ASIA Office will hold a symposium jointly hosted with Fudan University and Korea University to mark the official start of the CAMPUS ASIA Program. This program was adopted in academic year 2016 as part of MEXT’s “Re-Inventing Japan Project”. The program aims to train international specialists in risk management, covering both man-made and natural disasters.

During the symposium, the supervising professors from each university will outline the achievements and issues from the 5-year pilot program, and new initiatives for the current program. Following this, graduate students from the three universities, with a focus on CAMPUS ASIA participants, will present their research on a wide range of topics.

No advance registration is necessary. For more details, please see below. We look forward to your attendance.
