Government-Academia-Private Sector Collaborative Projects




GRIPS is working to develop global human resources who can contribute to creating a sustainable society through public-private partnerships. By using our unique international education and research environment we have created opportunities and places for exchanges and research with companies and public officials from overseas.

Creating New Opportunities

In order to develop our projects into a forum where issues to achieve the SDGs are discussed and a step forward toward resolution, the “GRIPS Social Accelerator Program” will be launched. By participating in this program, you will be able to come into contact with Japan’s most advanced science and technology and interact with business people working at the forefront of Japanese companies, deepen your learning in Japan and gain knowledge that can contribute to the development of your home country.
