The Disaster Prevention Research Institute (DPRI) 2022 Collaborative Research program aims to advance the science of natural hazards and multidisciplinary studies on disaster mitigation.
Categories of projects supported by the program include General Collaborative Research, Long- and Short-Term Research Visits, and Workshops and Symposia, some of which are open to researchers affiliated with non-Japanese institutions and non-governmental organizations and also from doctoral students.
DPRI is currently focusing its efforts on four research areas — "Great earthquake disaster mitigation", "Meteorologically extreme phenomenon and disaster", "Volcanic disaster", and "Implementation science for disaster risk reduction" — as well as on the promotion of international research collaboration. For the 2022 Collaborative Research program, the institute welcomes diverse and unique proposals but may give preference to those related to the above areas.
