7 Faculty Members from the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences Visit the Tokyo University of Science through the JST's Sakura Science Plan--Research Exchange Implemented at School of Management

2016.07.28 Thursday


Over a 9-day period from July 16 (Saturday) to July 24 (Sunday), 7 faculty members from the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences visited the School of Management through support from the Japan-Asia Youth Exchange Program in Science (Sakura Science Plan) organized by the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST). During this period, research exchange and science and technology experiences were carried out.

This exchange was held with the objective of having the visitors understand Japanese economic policy and development models by carrying out joint research activities on the economic policies and development models of Japan, which is an advanced nation in Asia, and China, which is an emerging nation, as well as to increase the desire of the young researchers, who have an interest in Japanese corporations and the economy, towards research activities in Japan or with Japan in the future, by touching upon the splendor of the development of Japanese society and economy.

During the exchange, the visitors exchanged opinions with students in the Makino Research Group in the School of Management, listened to a lecture by Kyoto University Professor Akira Okada, presented research results in seminars based on the themes of The Forefront of Money and Finance and Economic Policies and Corporate Models: Comparison Between Japan and China, and promoted research exchange.
In addition, at Haneda Chronogate and the Bank of Japan headquarters, the researchers learned about management mechanisms, and at the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation, they toured a model of the Super-Kamiokande, which was linked to a Nobel Prize in Physics.

Through this exchange, there are expectations for young researchers from both China and Japan to deepen their awareness of problems that are present in the current economies of both countries, carry out academic exchange on improving solutions and the competitive power of companies, and expand mutual exchanges that take future joint research into consideration.
The Tokyo University of Science is deeply appreciative of the JST's Sakura Science Plan, which has created an opportunity for such an exchange.
