In 2013, Hiroshima University was selected as one of the institutions under MEXT's "Program for Promoting the Enhancement of Research Universities." From 2014, HU has selected “Centers of Excellence”, which are expected to play a leading role within the university for years to come, as well as “Promising Research Initiatives”, which are researcher groups who are aiming to become independent “Centers of Excellence” in research in the mid to long-term. Since then, the above research groups have been given extensive support from the university.
Currently, there is one “Center of Excellence” and one “Promising Research Initiative” led by academics from the Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences, both of which have been respectively conducting promising and distinctive research.
