About Us

The International Research Center for River Basin Environment (ICRE) was established in April, 2007 as an institution affiliated with the Faculty of Engineering, University of Yamanashi. It was established to contribute to the creation of a prominent international research and education stronghold in line with the activity plan of the 21st century COE program launched in 2003. Then, in order to consolidate the multi-disciplinary research base of the COE program, in April, 2008, the ICRE changed its status to that of an institution affiliated with the Interdisciplinary Graduate School of Medicine and Engineering, University of Yamanashi.

We have MOU since 2007 and collaborative research works on water-related disaster & education of disaster prevention with Faculty of Engineering-University of Brawijaya in Indonesia and promoting expert exchanges.
