Global Station for Food, Land and Water Resources
GSF, Our Global Station
As the third Global Station in GI-CoRE, Global Station for Food, Land and Water Resources (GSF) has launched in April 2015 at the newly constructed building overlooking the spacious experimental farms of Hokkaido University.
We provide an optimal environment for the world top ranked academic staff and the full management support for those who participate in GSF by Professor Tomomi Marutani, the director of the Global Station and other management staff.
The Graduate School of Global Food Resources
The Graduate School of Global Food Resources was opened in April 2017. It offers the interdisciplinary Education Program to students from various countries. The aim of the Graduate School of Global Food Resources is to nurture world leaders who possess both International and Glocal (global＋local) perspectives to solve the critical issues of Food, Land, and Water Resources in the 21st century. In collaboration with the GSF teaching members from Hokkaido University and the excellent academic staff from overseas institutions, we are providing a unique education program for our international students.

Today, the scarcity of food, land and water in our life is increasing. These resource shortage and rapid population growth are the issues require urgent attention. In our Global station, we approach these Global Challenges from the following three points: Production, Environment and Governance, and endeavor to disseminate the global scale research from Hokkaido Japan.
