In the midst of the Corona disaster, it is expected that it will be difficult to carry out the regional cooperation activities that we have been conducting so far, and it will be difficult to deepen cooperation with the community, so this time we will also target projects that have not been decided on a specific partner at the time of application, or projects that are intended to propose to the community (such as creating a publicity video of the store to promote the shopping district). However, even in such cases, it is desirable to understand the needs of the region while utilizing online and other means.

(1) Projects in which universities and student groups and local communities (residents' organizations, civic action groups, businesses, etc.* mainly active in the Kyoto City area) collaborate and collaborate as an organization or group, and in particular, students take the initiative in their activities.
* Administrative agencies may be included in the collaborating destination, but cooperation with administrative agencies alone is not possible.
Examples: Surveys and research, public lectures, events, etc. in various fields such as health and welfare, social education, community development, promotion of academic, cultural, artistic or sports, environmental conservation,
and community safety.

(2) Those that have not received subsidies or subsidies from Kyoto City other than the academic town collaboration project.

(3) Comply with the Guidelines for Infectious Disease Control for the Gakumachi Collaboration Project.
