Links with Society

It is important to develop and manage unlimited and original creation of intellectual property for science and technology which can contribute towards society by taking the advantage of education and research at the university. Mie University aggressively conducts collaborative activities with society. We support “Youth Science Festival,” “Children University” at the Iga Community-based Research Center, “Ninja Study Seminar” at the Iga Cooperation Field, and “Disaster Prevention and BCP Planning Seminar for Private Sectors.” We also offer practical learning education such as “Education Program for Developing Human Resources for Disaster Mitigation” and Community SMEs Problem Solving MOT (Management of Technology) Education Program, for the public.
Graduate School of Regional Innovation Studies was established in 2009 to foster human resources practically through collaborative activities and to produce core personnel for industrial circles in communities.
In April, 2011, the “Regional Area Strategy Center” was opened as one of the offices in the Community-University Research Cooperation Center. The Center works on giving suggestions and recommendations on issues such as industrial development, regional improvement, tourism policy, and environmental policy for contributions to society through collaboration between municipalities. In addition, “Disaster Mitigation Research Center” was opened in April, 2014, to promote research, education and social cooperation on disaster prevention and mitigation as well as to contribute towards disaster medical care in the region around Mie Prefecture.

Collaborative Research Projects with Industry-University-Government

This is a project for Industry-University-Government and local communities to cooperate and reorganize the industrial structure to encourage the local economy. The part of the project is called “Mie Regional Innovation with Food” and is a project to support the local food industries. We have established the Food Material Search Lab inside the Creative Research & Development Institute. Thus, we expand collaboration research with private sectors.
