Implementation Report

23 Public presentation (second screening)

This fiscal year, we received 15 applications, and in order to appeal to the selection committee members about the effects, characteristics, and enthusiasm of the projects, we held a second screening meeting (open presentation screening meeting) for those who passed the first screening (document screening).


23 Business certification ceremony

Of the 15 projects that were applied for this fiscal year, eight were certified as eligible for support, and a certification ceremony was held at Kyoto City Hall on Friday, July 8, 2011. Mayor Kadokawa of Kyoto City presented certificates to the representatives of each project.


Heisei 23 Certified Business Report Meeting

《Report Session》
The 23rd academic town collaboration certification business report meeting and the 24th year business recruitment briefing session were held on Saturday, April 7, 2012 at Campus Plaza Kyoto.
On the day of the event, many people including students and university officials, not only city staff but also the general public attended, and activity reports were made from eight organizations adopted in the 23rd academic year.
In the course of planning and operating various initiatives in the region, we have faced many issues, and the results of the project will be a great asset for both students and the community, and I believe that we can utilize them in future activities.
I hope that such initiatives will be carried out on an ongoing basis, not one-offs, and that new businesses will be created and a cycle of revitalization will circulate in each ward of Kyoto City!
