To integrate research results of this project and apply to practical disaster mitigation measures, we arrange and construct working groups in Nagoya city, Osaka city and Kochi city. In these cities, severe damages of next megathrust earthquakes around the Nankai trough are estimated, therefore, we will discuss with administrative organs, public corporations of life lines and researchers etc. in each working group. In discussions of working group, we introduce advanced researches to understand the present and future expected researches of the Nankai trough in each other. Furthermore, we will extract characteristic issues and estimated damages of strong motions, long period motions and tsunamis based on the future scenarios of next meagthrust earthquakes in each working group. And fruits of working group discussions will contribute to constructions of new disaster mitigation measures in administrative organs, public corporations of life lines etc.
