Outline of the event



In recent years, many government subsidy projects have been developed to support diverse collaborations between universities, local communities, industries, etc., and in Heisei 24, the "University Reform Action Plan" was formulated as the basic policy of the national university policy. One of the important issues in this plan is "human resource development that responds to globalization," which overlaps with the expectations of industry that universities are expected to develop human resources who can work immediately. In addition, the creation of a university that will be the core of regional revitalization has been presented as the "Center of Community (COC) Concept," and there is a need to strengthen cooperation between the community and universities and lifelong learning functions.
Therefore, we will focus on the role of universities demanded by local communities and industry, as well as the future of collaboration and its future, and will hold the event under the theme of "The Role Required of Universities and the Future of Inter-University Collaboration."
