NEDO Special Courses (Comprehensive Implementation of Human Resource Development, Industry-Academia Collaboration, etc. Centered on NEDO Projects)

Project overview

Project period: starting in FY2006

The goal of this project is to help develop Japan's industrial technology by establishing a venue to develop human resources to support advanced and integrated technologies as well as promote, in terms of human interaction, industry-academia collaboration.

More specifically, this project involves implementing the below activities in relation to: [1] NEDO projects in which universities or other research institutions are providing the core technologies and are in the process of producing or have produced superior results (i.e. core projects) and [2] the highest-level research centers in Japan in terms of technology management.

  1. Human resource development
    With regard to the core technology or technology management of core projects, lectures and seminars are held where instructors are core-project leaders, company experts, or similar professionals, and a human resource development program is being implemented that utilizes peripheral research.
  2. Expansion of interpersonal exchanges,
    A network of researchers, engineers, and others is being created and interpersonal exchanges and similar projects are being organized that focus on core technologies or technology management of core projects.
  3. Implementation of peripheral research
    Basic research is being conducted related to core technologies or technology management of core projects. Derivative research is also being conducted that contributes to the dissemination or further development of basic research results.
