International Advisory/Evaluation Committee for the ISEI COE-21 Program

As is clear from the title of our COE-21 program, the aim is to extend our ISEI's mission, which has so far been designed mainly for nation-wide cooperation in Earth science, to an international collaborative research and education center. This mission is founded on the advanced experimental and analytical techniques that have been developed at ISEI, with the aim of understanding the origin, evolution and dynamics of the Earth. We believe that the establishment of such an international center will provide excellent research opportunities for the world scientific community, especially to young researchers at the graduate and post-graduate level as well as wide range of professional geoscientists. In order to conduct this institute as an international center, we will invite research scientists, post-doctoral fellows and graduate students from Japan and around the world to ISEI. The selection and evaluation of projects, post-doctoral fellows and students are the most crucial factor to establish this program at a high quality level. To help with this important task, the International Advisory/Evaluation Committee for the ISEI COE-21 Program has been organized, consisting of 6 scientists as listed below:
