Research Institute for Sustainable Humanosphere (RISH)

The Research Institute for Sustainable Humanosphere (RISH) was established in 2004. Defining the regions vital to human existence as the humanosphere, the institute aims to promote academic study in a new field of science. The institute pursues four missions to solve present and future humanospheric problems: (1) Humanosphere Assessment and Remediation, (2) Refinement of Solar Energy through Bio-mass and Solar Power Satellite Research, (3) Exploration of the Space Environment and its Utilization and (4) Development of Technology and Materials for the Cyclical Utilization of Bio-based Resources.
 The RISH also holds cooperative lectures with the graduate schools of engineering, agriculture, informatics, and science with the aim of fostering researchers with a broad insight and a wide range of experiences. Such researchers will be vital for the world in the 21st century.
