The Program for Promoting the Enhancement of Research UniversitiesSince being selected for the“ Program for Promoting the Enhancement of Research Universities” by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) in 2013, we have established international collaborative research groups for life sciences, natural sciences, and humanities and social sciences in order to globalize and strengthen our research activities. Under the management of top professors in each research group, we invite researchers from abroad, recruit talented young researchers, regularly hold international seminars, establish overseas joint laboratories, and do much more.
