RIHN Invited Scholar Program
RIHN Visiting Research Fellow Program

Overview

The mission of RIHN is to conduct integrative research on key areas of interaction between humanity and nature. RIHN solicits, funds, and hosts research projects lasting up to five years. Projects conduct high-quality applied research, always based on interdisciplinary approaches including natural science, social science, and the humanities. Moreover, the transdisciplinary approach is increasingly important: it seeks to redefine the role of science in society, improve dialogue between different traditions of knowledge, and stimulate local, national and international collaborations in the design and production of knowledge concerning key social and environmental issues.

The RIHN Invited Scholar and RIHN Visiting Research Fellow schemes enable overseas researchers to spend several months at the Institute, conducting research and contributing to the development of the Institute.
