In addition to the Joint Symposium, workshops and other events spanning twelve different academic fields were held between 19 to 25 July, resulting in a diverse and interdisciplinary exchange.

The University of Tokyo’s “Building a Global Campus Model” was selected to be part of MEXT’s “Top Global University Projects”. As Strategic Partnerships are at the core of constructing the University’s Global Campus Model, through this opportunity of establishing and signing of the memorandum, not only are student exchanges and joint research expected within such framework but further collaboration and exchanges in a wide range of academic fields are also anticipated.
