Hiroshima University is hosting 3 Mexican trainees from the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) at the Center for Collaborative Research & Community Cooperation.
The Center for Collaborative Research & Community Cooperation at Hiroshima University has been assigned to convey the learning course from JICA’s program for Mexico-Japan Strategic Global Partnership. Thus HU is hosting 3 Mexican trainees from May to December 2017.
The trainees have received a Japanese language course during two and a half months at the JICA center in Nagoya, prior to their training at the Venture Business Laboratory (VBL office) in Hiroshima. The topic of the training is the “Establishment of the recurring innovation system through a framework of industry-academia-government partnership”.
In the frame of this learning course, they receive lectures by university researchers, participate in case studies and receive mentorship from professors. They are also following courses about MOT (Management of Technology) and entrepreneurship; and visiting companies and businesses, among other activities.
In addition, they are also expected to take part in the preparation and development of the Mexican – Japanese rector summit that will take place at the end of November in Hiroshima. This year the program is being launched for the first time in order to strengthen the collaboration with Mexico.
