About the Center for the Promotion of Integrated Science

Overview

The Philosophy of the Establishment of the Center

The Center for the Promotion of Integrated Sciences (hereinafter referred to as “the Center”), serving as an inter-departmental joint education and research center in the Graduate University for Advanced Studies, aims to enhance open and free academic exchange across departments and schools and promote integrated sciences to create interdisciplinary and cutting-edge academic disciplines. The Center promotes the following four programs as its core.

The Center’s Programs

Programs for Multidisciplinary Coordination in Research

These programs organize and implement strategic research projects, research programs through call for proposals including interdisciplinary research, and other research-related activities to be promoted by the Center.

(1) Strategic research projects
(2) Interdisciplinary research programs within the University through call for proposals
(3) Programs to support young or female researchers
(4) Organizing and implementing programs to fund academic publication
(5) Matters related to organizing and implementing other research-related programs to be promoted by the Center

Programs for Multidisciplinary Coordination in Research

These programs organize and implement the promotion of inter-departmental education programs that provide “comprehensive vision for science and society”.

(1) Support for organizing and implementing comprehensive subjects (inter-departmental subjects)
(2) Promoting education programs concerning “Science and Society”
(3) Matters related to organizing and implementing other education-related programs to be promoted by the Center

Programs for Academic Exchange

These programs organize and implement enhancement of communication among faculty members and students across departments and schools, including inter-departmental joint education research projects.

Yoko Satta

Director of the Center for the Promotion of Integrated Sciences

My name is Yoko Satta. I have assumed the position of the Director of the Center from this April. In the third medium term objectives and plan which started in the previous fiscal year, the Center is expected to contribute to the education across departments and schools by utilizing the advantage of SOKENDAI (the Graduate University for Advanced Studies), that is, broadness of academic fields and its contribution to education.

We have been focusing on integrated science lectures as educational project activities, in this fiscal year, in the light of the reorganization of the Center, which is probably assumed within this fiscal year, it is necessary to more widely conduct the activities for educational projects across departments and schools such as the Freshman Course and coordination of interdisciplinary program development.

As for research projects,we will start the “Support for Integrated Science Researches” which continuously supports the researches selected from those in the past. The support for joint researches and seminars for germinating research has been continuing in a similar way that has been conducted in the past. We will also work on “Promotion services for papers with multidisciplinary collaboration” as well as “The Paper Publishing Cost Assistance for SOKENDAI Students”.

Toward realization of the educational objective of SOKENDAI since its foundation to “develop researchers combining ‘high expertise’, ‘wide vision and perspective’ and ‘international understanding’”, we will do our best with the activities of the Center to coordinate the education and researches across departments and schools. We kindly ask for your cooperation.
