Outline of the event


The 12th Policy Research Exchange Conference from Kyoto

This year, the 12th edition of the conference since fiscal 2005, is "Urban Policy in General," and a wide range of research presentations on policies to solve urban issues are invited from various perspectives such as the environment, economy, culture, community, and welfare.
Why don't you deepen exchanges among students not only at universities and graduate schools with policy faculties, but also beyond the boundaries of universities and seminars, and propose policy proposals and disseminate information about the results of daily research and learning to local communities?

Implementation Report

The 12th Policy Research Exchange Conference from Kyoto Preliminary Briefing Session

In preparation for the tournament on Sunday, December 4, a preliminary briefing session was held for presenters on Saturday, November 12, hosted by the Student Executive Committee.
The briefing session provided an overview of the competition, including the schedule on the day of the competition, precautions related to presentations, and judging criteria, as well as opportunities for participants to improve their motivation to make presentations in preparation for the competition, such as interaction between presenters and time to listen to last year's winners, which is new from this year.


The 12th Policy Research Exchange Conference from Kyoto

 This year, the 12th edition of the festival, we received applications on a wide range of themes not only from policy faculties but also from other faculties and universities. A total of 83 groups (65 oral presentations and 18 panel presentations) who passed the presentation selection gave presentations in various fields related to urban policy in 11 types of subcommittees and panel presentation venues.
In addition, during the judging time, a workshop was held for the student project planned and managed by the Student Executive Committee to focus on "major disasters" and "reconstruction that is forgotten with time." Through lectures and workshops by students involved in reconstruction support, 21 participants thought about "what is reconstruction" and "what kind of reconstruction support students can do" and gained new insights.
At the award ceremony that followed, the Research Encouragement Award was presented to outstanding presentations, and the venue was filled with cheers and excitement every time the award winners were announced. In addition to their impressions, the award winners commented on the difficulties they faced in writing and presenting papers and the points they had devised in their findings, suggesting that the contest was a place for great learning and rewarding in the presenters' thoughts toward the competition.
