International Activities


In July 2012, the UGSAS-GU held the international conference and discussed to conclude the IC-GU with 9 universities of 6 countries. At the 2nd international conference in July 2013, IC-GU12 has been concluded officially, and its activities have been started.

At present, 20 universities of 9 countries including Japan are members of IC-GU12.
We expect to recognize three positive outcomes of the consortium in the student; "global communication skill," "Collaborative research development skill" and "practical education and research experience". Global communication skill consists of English proficiency acquired through research practices and poster presentations in international academic conferences. Collaborative research development skill can be developed based on multi-perspectives of teamwork in identifying and solving the problems through on-site researches with the faculty staff/students in IC-GU12 members. And practical education and research experience is acquired by pragmatic experiences of overseas internship and research collaboration. Along with the outcomes, we ultimately aim to foster the so-called "GLOCAL leaders" who can contribute to human society as a local leader and a global leader as well.
