Our laboratory consists of three sections, Research and promotion of disaster management for natural and social infrastructure systems, Social skill implementation, and Education for disaster management. In these three sections, research, education, and actual practices are provided to establish a disaster management society, and they have close contact with each other. We also promote our activities, cooperating with the national government, local municipalities, educational institutions, industries, NPOs and local citizens.
These activities are not only provided on our campus but also in local society, where actual practices are specifically available (the field campus), and where development of research methods and their outcomes can be linked seamlessly to social technology. And by doing so, people who are able to support disaster mitigation society can be nurtured.
