Program for Promoting the Enhancement of Research Universities
Research Centers

For Hiroshima University to truly transform itself into a research university that is counted among the world's best, it is essential that the university's research activities be developed, and that its research achievements are disseminated on a global scale.
Ten of Hiroshima University's research centers have been newly selected from various domains to be main players in HU's transformation.

The DP/DR Program

On February 1, 2013, Hiroshima University established two new programs: the "Distinguished Professors" (DP) program and the "Distinguished Researchers" (DR) program. Individuals who are part of these programs are recognized as senior and junior faculty members respectively, who are engaged in extraordinarily distinguished research activities.  

Organization for Research Promotion

The Organization for Research Promotion comprehensively manages Hiroshima University's research activities in order to ensure its further development as a research university. For this purpose, the organization designates talented researchers and remarkable research topics and provides them with intensive support as part of its approach to creating unique research centers at the university. Additionally, the organization aims to develop a state-of-the-art research environment where researchers can focus on their research activities.
