Scope The Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) launched the "Integrated Program for Next Generation Volcano Research and Human Resource Development" in light of the eruption disaster at Mount Ontake in September 2014, with the aim of advancing Japan's volcano research and contributing to mitigation and disaster resilience countermeasures for volcanic hazards. The aims of this project are "Promotion of integrated volcano research encompassing observation, forecasting and countermeasures with unifying volcano observation data" and "Nurturing human resources with the qualities to become highly accomplished volcano researchers with specialized knowledge and skills regarding volcanoes". This session presents representative contributions of the project and welcomes proposals that develop future volcano research and human resource development.
