Osaka University Symposium - "Modes and Human Resource Development for Creating New Worth: The Future OU aims for through the Center for the Study of CO* Design"

2017-3-23 (Thu) 13:00 -

New ways of thinking and mechanisms that provide clues will create worth
Participants coming together to find this potential will create innovation
What networks and human resources will be required for that purpose?

  Innovation may be a buzzword of this generation, but Japan, facing various challenges and a declining economic position, is a country that needs a "revolution to create new worth," or innovation.

To celebrate the establishment of the Center for the Study of CO* Design, which develops new education related to innovation, Osaka University will be holding a symposium on changes in modes associated with creating worth and the requirements of the human resources that will be involved in it entitled "Osaka University Symposium - Modes and Human Resource Development for Creating New Worth."

  We hope that individuals from various fields will participate in this symposium in order to share the state of these challenges and search for clues to surmount them, as well as make this symposium a foothold to lead to collaboration.
