GLOCOL Seminar Series - The University and Globalization: Issues in Asia and the Knowledge of the University

2015-11-19 (Thu) 16:30 - 19:00

The University and Globalization
From Osaka University GLOCOL's 9 Years of Experience

Established in April 2007, the Global Collaboration Center (GLOCOL), under collaboration between organizations both inside the university and out, has entered various regional societies both inside Japan and abroad through research, education, and practical work, taking the problems of those people head on. In recent years, the world has been marching toward globalization, complete societal globalization on the horizon, and the activity at GLOCOL has set a precedent for this global shift. As of March 2016, the GLOCOL Project will come to a close, but how did GLOCOL face globalization and what kind of results did it produce? We'd like to share some of the results and lessons learned to this point, as well as the challenges for the future over a series of 4 seminars.

Seminar #1: Issues in Asia and the Knowledge of the University

How can we make apply the expert knowledge of the university to the problems that Asia is facing? Also, through what processes and ingenuity will this application of knowledge become possible? We'd like to share the results and challenges that were gained through research and practical projects carried out in Vietnam, Mongolia, and Bangladesh between GLOCOL and institutions both inside of Osaka University and out.
