It is expected to establish a society of comfort and satisfaction under the name of "the era of environment", so that it is necessary to solve environmental issues which have been made as a result of human activities, and to make our life secure and sustainable. Through the solution of such environmental issues, the members of this program ultimately are aiming at constructing the sustainable society in which resources are re-circulated, and people are strongly conscious of energy and resource saving. China is now in the rapid economical growth. To this particular situation of China, we are seeking the solution through research exchange and collaborating researches originate from this program. This is the 9th year, and we also discussed how to make the text book.


Groups 1, 2, 3 and 4 opened seminars. The main aim of the seminar was to know the research field or interest of researchers in the both countries, and it was recognized to promote collaborative researches. Each group discussed the contents of the text book, and then all groups together discussed it. This core university program supported research exchange within two countries. A banquet held on the 1st day offered the participants a chance to strengthen the ties with the representatives of each country. The exchange of opinions was fruitful, sharing their perceptions and future visions of this issue.
