We will conduct world-class, leading-edge research with distinctive characteristics, "one-of-a-kind" research rooted in the local community, and applied research that leads to solutions to social issues, while fostering a variety of basic research that will open the way to the future. We will also reform our research organizations and graduate schools to achieve these goals. Through both basic and applied research, we will support the co-creation of a society in which people can live happily.
We will produce world-class, distinctive, leading-edge research results. Mie University has communicated world-class, cutting-edge research results in semiconductors, next-generation batteries, next-generation high-speed communications, green innovation, and cardiovascular diagnostic imaging. This leading-edge research is all aimed at realizing a sustainable society, whether through environment, health, or infrastructure. We will pursue this research and establish research centers of excellence in the fields of engineering, agriculture and bioresources, and medicine, to conduct world-class, leading-edge research. At the same time, we will conduct "one-of-a-kind" research rooted in the local community, such as the study of nature and local culture in Mie and the Kii Peninsula, as well as multicultural regional development and sustainable regional eco-systems.
We will co-create research with industry and government with the aim of resolving regional issues and create intellectual property and patents to support this research. We will support the advancement of the Mie Regional Plan Co-Creation Organization and its child organization, the Regional Co-Creation Deployment Center that carry out co-creation projects, and conduct applied research on issues such as the environment and health, with the aim of applying those research findings in society. This includes health promotion through medical DX, carbon neutrality and cross-industrial collaboration in industrial clusters such as Yokkaichi, green innovation, disaster prevention, educational DX, and the effective use of tourism resources. In addition, we will establish educational and research organizations in engineering and related areas.
In order to encourage diverse basic research that will open the way to the future, we will enhance the communication of research achievements by expanding research support shared-use facilities, supporting the acquisition of external funding, and expanding support for younger researchers. We will also establish a management system to provide evidence-based support for research, such as using journal analysis data. Furthermore, we will develop an education and research system that promotes innovation by strengthening cooperation with STEM graduate schools, developing doctoral programs that integrate the humanities and sciences, internationalization, supporting graduate student enrollment, and accepting post-doctoral students.
Through these efforts, we will promote diverse and original research at Mie University that supports social co-creation.
