Earthquake research

By Anthony Finnegan

University of Ulster Jordanstown and Japanese academics are joining forces to research the management of disaster zones following earthquakes and fires.

A delegation from Japan's Tokyo University of Science (TUS) visited the Jordanstown campus recently alongside Japanese manufacturer, Mitubishi plastics, to discuss future projects. It is particularly relevant following the earthquake in Haiti.

This agreement will enable FireSERT staff, facilities, and equipment to be used to support TUS and Mitsubishi's research programmes supported by the Japanese government.
