The Coordinating Committee of Earthquake and Volcanic Eruption Prediction Researches (CCEVPR) was established within the ERI with the aim of promoting the Earthquake and Volcano Hazards Observation and Research Program. The Planning Committee is installed under the Coordinating Committee as the pivot in planning and implementing research programs across the country. The Planning Committee consists of full-time staff including a rotating member of the Coordination Center for Prediction Research of Earthquakes and Volcanic Eruptions, faculties of ERI’s other centers, and visiting researchers. The rotating member comes from a university or an institute outside the University of Tokyo, so as to engage other participating institutes in the program other than the ERI in the management of the Planning Committee, and he/she is rotated every two years or so. The Planning Committee undertakes the following activities:
- Design of the overall program and organization of working sessions for the designing.
- Planning working sessions to follow up on the progress of research projects and exchanging information, and promoting collaborative research projects with other relevant research fields.
- Hosting symposiums for reporting research results and summarize the research outcomes from the entire program.
At the annual symposium for reporting research results held every March, all the universities and organizations involved in the program report on the outcomes from their research topics. The annual report issued by the Subdivision on Geodesy, Council for Science and Technology, summarizes an overview of the research results from the program based on the reports presented by individual research projects. In 2014, the Planning Committee set up under its umbrella a research strategy office in which researchers from many other universities participated, in an effort to push forward with the research program more effectively through stronger coordination and collaboration among the large number of research topics.
