Niigata University has a long institutional history, with origins going back some 150 years. Since our inauguration as a national university in 1949 under the new university system, we have played an important role in higher education and research in Japan. Over the years, we have grown into a large-scale comprehensive university offering bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degree programs under ten faculties and five graduate schools in a wide range of disciplines spanning the humanities, education, law, economics, science, engineering, agriculture, medicine, health sciences, and dentistry. We have a student body of approximately 13,000 and 3,000 academic and administrative staff members. As a research-oriented university, we boast several world-leading research institutes, including the Brain Research Institute and the Research Institute for Natural Hazards and Disaster Recovery as well as a university hospital providing high-level medical care as an advanced treatment hospital for the region.

Call for Climate Services Collaborative Research action on Climate Predictability and Inter-regional Linkages
Climate Services aim at providing more reliable climate information for the near future (months to decades) relevant for local and regional users. Within this broad context, variability of polar and tropical systems affects a large proportion of the world population. This call with the Belmont Forum aimed to contribute to the overall challenge of developing climate services with a focus on inter-regional linkages role in climate variability and predictability. Eight multi-national projects have been selected for funding through this call.
