Outline of fostering human resources what our consortium aims for.

What is our consortium aiming for?

  • We aim to foster human resources who respond flexibly to the contingency and changing situations in modern society, and who have ability to research and practice to maintain, provide, and recover desired social functions.


The diverse educational methods which our consortium would provide

  • High-grade researchers of our consortium who have academic qualifications supervise student’s researches.
  • Highly professional researchers give lectures on the current topics of Risk and Resilience.
  • We offer a variety of internship programs at the associated institutions. It usually takes a couple of weeks to months and enables students to get some business experiences  under coaching from researchers who have professional knowledge and skills in the relevant fields.
  • Student’s achievements and acquired competences are evaluated qualitatively and quantitatively by using Achievement Level Assessment System.
  • We regularly review the system of fostering human resources in accordance with PDCA cycle.


Fulfilling contents which our consortium would provide

  • Main coaching in accordance with research topics
  • Sub trans-border coaching by industry-academia partnership
  • Lectures, practices, and internship programs by top-class researchers of each fields
