UK Japan Disaster Risk Reduction Workshop

Publication date:

Start: Nov 22, 2013 9:00:00 AM
End: Nov 22, 2013 8:00:00 PM

This workshop is for academics and researchers from the UK and Japan, primarily from UCL and Tohoku University respectively but including their collaborators and others from academia and commerce, to present their recent and ongoing research in the linked fields of Disaster Science and Disaster Risk Reduction. The aims of the workshop will be to, firstly, increase knowledge and understanding of their respective activities, and secondly to provide a basis for discussion and development of future research collaborations between the UK and Japan in these research fields. Accordingly, the sessions of the workshop will feature a balance of presentations between UK-based and Japan-based researchers. Furthermore, each session will link areas of disaster science directly with their corresponding areas of disaster risk reduction research, in order to foster research activities into natural hazards and the physical processes of disaster events that lead directly to improvements in disaster risk reduction technologies and policies.
