On April 1, Kobe University opened our new Graduate School of Science, Technology and Innovation.
This is Japan’s first interdisciplinary independent graduate school, a collaboration between the areas of natural and social sciences in Kobe University. It combines four priority areas for flagship research at Kobe University (Bioproduction, Advanced Membrane Technology, Advanced Information and Communication Technology, and Advanced Medical Science) with education in the entrepreneurial skills necessary for enterprise creation. The Graduate School aims to create a new interdisciplinary education and research system and to train science-focused individuals with the ability to initiate innovations in science and technology.
On the same day, the signboard for the new Graduate School was officially installed. The ceremony was attended by 18 people including Kobe University President TAKEDA Hiroshi, other members of the University administration, and Dean of the Graduate School of Science, Technology and Innovation, Professor KONDO Akihiko.
