History (5):
  • 1944/05
    The Wood Research Institute (WRI) consisting of three Research Sections of Wood Physics, Wood Chemistry snd Wood Biology was established in Kyoto Imperial University.
  • 1949/05
    The National School Establishment Law was enacted and the Institute was recognized as the Institute attached to Kyoto University.
  • 1961/04
    Ionosphere Research Laboratory (IRL) established (atached to the Faculty of Engineering) Research section of upper atmosphere physics established.
  • 1981/04
    RASC established (IRL was reorganized and renamed).
  • 2004/04
    Research Institute for Sustainable Humanosphere (RISH) established.
Business overview:
The primary objective of the RISH is to explore innovative
sciences and technlogies which will contribute to
establishing a solar energy-dependent susutainable society
amenable to the environment. To this end, we also aim to
provide solutions to present and future problems involving
the four regions of our humanosphere by investigating
these problems from a global point of view. RISH was
established as a new domestic and international
collaborative research institute which consists of the
following three research cores: the core Research
Divisions, which focus on fundamental research on the
humanosphere, the Department of collaborative Research
Programs, which promotes domestic and international
collaborative research, and the Center for Exploratory
Research on the Humanosphere, which explores creative and
innovative fields of research by amalgamating different
research disciplines and expertise.
