RIKEN ID holders who can use the RIKEN network should take e-learning courses at el.riken.jp.

 

Local Account Eligible Users

  • RIKEN ID holders whose RIKEN ID begins with a non-numeric character such as “G”, prospective RIKEN employees, and outsourced workers
  • RIKEN ID holders who do not have a VPN connection (for those whose system user classification is “Guest,” such as visiting scientists and trainees)
  • RIKEN ID holders who do not use the RIKEN network (for those whose system user classification is “Guest,” such as visiting scientists and trainees)

 

How to create a local account

[NOTICE] EMOTET e-mail that deceives an e-mail address of RIKEN as the sender

 

We would like to alert you to the fact that we have observed some e-mails from this month that deceive RIKEN’s e-mail address as the sender.

The sender’s address currently observed is as follows

  bic[at]riken.jp  * Replace “[at]” with “@”.

If you are receiving any of these emails, please check carefully that they are legitimate before handle them.

Publication of e-Learning external access-only website: el2.riken.jp

 

Due to the unauthorized access to our e-learning service last fall, we had restricted communication so that no one from outside RIKEN could connect to our e-learning service. 

We have now prepared a server, el2.riken.jp, exclusively for external access.

    Publication Date of “el2.riken.jp” : Monday, May 2, 9:00 a.m. –
