The Research Center for World Buddhist Cultures consists of following three research divisions: Basic Research Division, Applied Research Division, and International Research Division. They organically cooperate with each other and conduct multiple research activities.
In the Applied Research Division, there is the Center for Humanities, Science and Religion (hereafter, CHSR) as a permanent research system.
CHSR has been adopted as the “Academic Research Promotion Work in Private Universities” of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology. (1st term from 2002 to 2006, 2nd term from 2007 to 2009, and 3rd term, as the “Industry to support private universities building up their foundations of strategic research,” from 2010 to 2012)
Afterwards, as the “distinctive research project based on Buddhism,” CHSR was also adopted as the research project which was maintained by intramural funds of the Ryukoku University. It has developed research in the Ryukoku Research Center for Interdisciplinary Studies in Religion, Science and Humanities from 2013 to 2014 and in the Research Center for World Buddhist Cultures from 2015.
CHSR has achieved numerous research results, and has incredibly high recognition in contemporary Japanese society. CHSR continues research activities as the “Applied Research Division” in the Research Center for World Buddhist Cultures since 2016.
