Lecture Description

The Program for Leading Graduate Schools (Program), includes 62 programs, at some 30 participating universities, with active collaboration between industry, academia and government. This is developing graduate students equipped with creativity and a holistic view across multiple disciplines.

This Forum disseminates the progress of this educational initiative and showcases the diversity of understanding the students have been able to attain. The aim of the Forum is to further enhance the Program by sharing the implementation status and challenges of each program to a broader constituency. This reflects the Program’s commitment to innovation in, and enrichment of, graduate education in Japan. Progress and development in Ph.D. education tailored to the anticipated changes in society will be also discussed.
