SD Forum

Overview of the business

In a situation where the environment surrounding universities is changing rapidly, the management and operation of universities has come to occupy an important position, and the role of university staff is becoming very large. In order to adapt to such an environment, we are developing various projects to improve the qualifications of university staff, including management and operation, education and research support.
The SD Forum takes up themes of growing interest in the SD field, and aims to provide a place for improving the abilities of university staff and exchanging information beyond the boundaries of the university through keynote speeches, case reports and exchange of opinions in breakout sessions.
