The Strategy Planning Office, Osaka University Institute for Academic Initiatives is holding a forum, "Global University Rankings and Excellence Indicators Reexamined: Realities, Challenges, and Prospects," on February 6, 2015, under the support of the Super Global University Project.

This forum will discuss how the globalization of higher education and dissemination of the international ranking system led by Western countries affect academic research in the world. In the process of promoting international evaluation and global awareness, what issues can Japanese universities present for evaluation systems initiated by the U.S. and European countries? How should research evaluation function in order to increase universities' international competitiveness and lead research evaluation to the development of academic research in the future? We will discuss these topics as well as examine the role of research universities in Japan. The organizers look forward to welcoming many to this seminar.
