G7 Science and Technology Ministers’ IRIDeS Visit

  On May 12-14, the G7 Sendai Science and Technology Ministers’ Meeting was held in Sendai, Japan, to discuss strengthening science and technology cooperation to solve global issues. On May 13, G7 Ministers visited IRIDeS, Tohoku University, as part of the meeting's study tour.
  This page shows what we have introduced upon the G7 Ministers’ IRIDeS visit: an overview of IRIDeS, examples of IRIDeS distinctive studies, and some collaborative research and activities IRIDeS researchers have conducted with researchers and organizations based in the G7 countries.
  It is hoped that the G7 Science and Technology Ministers’ IRIDeS visit to Tohoku University could become an opportunity for the G7 countries to deepen their interest in and understanding of the science that has developed from the lessons of the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami, and further to promote international cooperation between us in the field of disaster science.
