Research Cooperation Network

ITS Center is actively engaged in international/domestic collaboration. In concrete, we conclude agreements for research cooperation (MOU; Memorandum of Understanding) between ITS Center (or IIS) and other universities/institutes, including Exchange of researchers and students, Mutual use of facilities, Conducting joint research, Holding lectures and symposia, Exchange of information and academic publications, etc. We have ever held a series of joint symposiums and workshops with research institutes in several countries. The research network is planned to be expanded further.
