The Program for Promoting the Enhancement of Research Universities

Hiroshima University has been selected as one of the institutions designated under MEXT's "The Program for Promoting the Enhancement of Research Universities."

Focusing attention on the institution-wide function of academic research, "The Program for Promoting the Enhancement of Research Universities" aims to augment the research capability of each institution and contribute to the strengthening of a group of Japanese universities engaged in world-class research activities. Based on a situation analysis of their own research activities, the institutions are encouraged to employ and utilize URAs*, human resource personnel engaged in research administration who are in charge of research strategy and intellectual property management. The institutions are also encouraged to strategically support the implementation of effective initiatives for research environment restructuring, such as the promotion of efforts to accelerate competitive research, the creation of innovative research areas, and the development of a world-class research environment.
