DESIGN-i Project Launched

The “Sustainable University Town Initiative driven by Academic Enterprise,” jointly proposed by Hiroshima University and Higashi-Hiroshima City and in cooperation with the local community, has been adopted for the project of “Dealing with Social Issues in Regions through Science and Technology Innovation (DESIGN-i project)” by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT).

This proposal is implemented with Higashi-Hiroshima City Hall and the local stakeholders and is an attempt to promote sharing knowledge at the level that Higashi-Hiroshima City becomes a city shaped by young intellectuals around the world and with increased population size. Together with Higashi-Hiroshima citizens and domestic and overseas stakeholders, we aim to create a sustainable and attractive new town.
