Contributing to the community, collaborating with industry and government
A key role of the University of Shizuoka is contributing to the community and collaborating with industry and government. In 2019, the University created its “Innovation Promotion System from Fuji-no-kuni” in order to foster promising personnel through education and training in conjunction with the local community and to contribute to community growth by sharing the results of academic research. Planning is carried out by the Committee for Community Contribution and Collaboration with Industry and Government, which is chaired by the President of the University. The “Fuji-no-kuni Center for Future Education” implements projects that contribute to the community. The Headquarters to Promote Collaboration between Industry and Academia implements projects involving collaboration with industry and government. The creation of this new organization has further promoted interdisciplinary research in the humanities and sciences within the university, has fostered personnel who are sharing the results of research and training with the community, and has promoted efforts to contribute to the community and to collaborate with industry and government.
Cooperation among industry, academia, nonprofit organizations, and government has produced substantial results.
