Outline of the event

"The 14th Policy Research Exchange Conference from Kyoto"

The 14th Policy Research Exchange Conference from Kyoto

This year, the 14th edition of the conference since fiscal 2005, is "Urban Policy in General" and a wide range of research presentations are invited on policies to solve urban issues 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?
We look forward to hearing your presentations!

The tournament on Sunday, December 16

On Sunday, December 16, the 14th Policy Research Exchange Conference from Kyoto was held at Ryukoku University's Fukakusa Campus Washakan Campus.

This year marks the 14th time that students and graduate students who identify problems and issues faced by cities and conduct research to solve them present their research results.
Fifty-five groups gave oral presentations in 10 subcommittees on tourism and culture. Both the students who give presentations and the students who ask questions are serious. The enthusiastic question-and-answer session and advice from the judges seemed to give the students hints for deepening their research in the future.

Seventeen groups participated in the panel presentation. Through research presentations, many students deepened exchanges with students from other universities who they rarely have the opportunity to meet.

In the student project in which Professor Naoki Shiomi of Fukuchiyama Public University was invited as a guest speaker, under the title of "A to Z, a town where young people want to live," images of the city they want to live in were presented in keywords and sentences collected from the participants, and Professor Shiomi gave a lecture on it.

And the award ceremony. When the names of the award winners were announced in the hall, there was a roar and cheer, and the award winners shared their thoughts on this research presentation along with their impressions.
The number of entries is increasing year by year, and this tournament is attracting more and more attention. From the expressions and words of the participating students, it was clear that they had great opportunities for learning and exchange this year as well.
