[3] The 50th Annual Training Course started

The 50th Annual Training on Seismology, Earthquake Engineering and Tsunami
Disaster Mitigation courses started on October 2nd 2009. In this year, we
invite 23 participants from 14 countries. As to the Tsunami Disaster
Mitigation course, the target region has been expanded and we invite 5
participants not only from Asia but also from Pacific Region and South
America this year. These training courses will be carried out until
September next year in cooperation with GRIPS and JICA. After getting
through the courses with credits required, the master's degree will be
awarded to the participants. So, we hope all 2009-10 participants will take
the master's degree one year later.
