Call for Participants in JENESYS PROGRAM 2010


An Educational Program for the Leader in Environmental Protection on the basis of Laboratory Works and Fields Works

The summary of the program:This program is one of JENESYS (the Japan-East Asia Network of Exchange for Students and Youths) programs supported by JASSO (Japan Student Services Organization). The aim of this program is to bring up the leaders having internationality and wide scope visions in the field of environmental protection under the conduction of Graduate School of Environmental Science (GSES) of Hokkaido University. In order to acquire the concepts of environmental protection, the basic and advanced knowledge and technologies for environmental monitoring, environmental evaluation and environmental remediation methods will be learned through this program under the supervision of scientists in the laboratories of GSES, Hokkaido University. In addition, through the seminars and lectures prepared for this program, students will understand global environment problems, an environmental difference between Tropical Zone and Temperate Zone, and the difference of the action to the environmental problems in each country. Students in this program will take part in interchanging with Japanese researchers and students in the nature of the Temperate Zone area (a cool and warm band including snow season).
We hope that this program leads to the entrance into Doctoral Course in Hokkaido University to become an excellent engineer and/or scientist in your country. (The detail of the program should be referred in an attached sheet.)

The period of the program: From October 1, 2010 to March 31, 2011
The recruitment number of people: Six students from Indonesia, India and the Philippines in total

An Educational Program of Leaders for Environmental Conservation on the basis of Laboratory Trainings and Seminars in Japan

Contents of the program
◇  ◇  ◇  ◇  ◇

This program is to bring up the leaders having internationality and wide scope visions in the field of environmental conservation. The program consists of the environmental research, lectures, laboratory training courses and seminars as shown as follows. During six months of this program, the participants will learn the basic concepts and technologies for environmental monitoring, environmental conservation, and environmental remediation through the lectures and laboratory trainings. The participants will also take part in some seminars to exchange the information on environmental science and to interchange with Japanese researchers and students. In addition, a short term research on environmental conservation, remediation and so on will be performed under the supervision of researchers of Graduate School of Environmental Science (GSES), Hokkaido University.

  1. Special research on environmental science
    Each student will belong to each laboratory of GSES during this program. Under the supervision of each researcher, the research concerning environmental conservation and remediation will be carried out in each laboratory. In the end of the program, the results obtained by the research will be presented in front of all teachers. The researchers of Division of Environmental Science Development of GSES will mainly supervise these researches.
  2. Laboratory and fields works
    A) Laboratory trainings of environmental analysis consisting of basic and advanced chemical experiments、instrumental analyses、physiology and cell biology (Indonesian and Japanese teaching assistants will support you during the trainings.)
    B) Trainings Course of Environmental Material Chemistry
    C) Method for International Communication
    D) Training in Experimental Forest or Marine Station
  3. Seminars
    A) Subject Seminar for Environmental Remediation
    B) Tour Seminar for Environmental Remediation : The inspection of environmental facilities and plants in Hokkaido for drinking water, sewage and garbage incineration. The problems in each plant will be discussed after the inspection.
    C) Environmental Science Seminar in English
  4. Lectures
    A) Basic Lecture for Environmental Science
    B) Advanced Course in Environmental Remediation
    C) Advanced Course in Dynamics of Global Warming
    D) Advanced Course in International Communication Methods
    E) Biochemical Resources
