Progress Report on Osaka University Research Administrator (URA) Project (in Osaka)

2015-3-26 (Thu) 13:20 - 17:20

Recently, universities in Japan have been working on establishing a system for improving research promotion through strengthening research management by making use of research administrators (URA).

Osaka University was selected to participate in the Research Administrator Development Program (improvement of research administration system) sponsored by The Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology in June 2012.

Following that, the Support Office for Large-Scale Education and Research Projects established a URA team. In order to establish the role of the URA and improve and enhance the research promotion system and its function, Osaka University has proceeded with the URA system project according to a 3-year plan.

At the completion of the three-year plan, Osaka University will hold meetings in Tokyo on March 24 and in Osaka on March 26 in order to share its efforts with those inside OU and out and consider the development of research administration activities in the future and the role that URA should play.

At the Osaka venue, in addition to the progress report of URA at Osaka University, we have invited YAMASHITA Hiroshi, head of the Technology Licensing Organization, Community Support Department, Research and Coordination Division, Science and Technology Policy Bureau, Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, to give a keynote lecture on "the future development of URA and its support of innovation creation." All interested persons are encouraged to attend.
