AGU Future Eagle Project is adopted by JST’s Next Generation Researcher Challenging Research Program.
Aoyama Gakuin University was selected as the implementing agency of the "Support for Pioneering Research Initiated by the Next Generation" of the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST).
The “Support for Pioneering Research Initiated by the Next Generation" aims to create an environment where late doctoral students can concentrate on research, where challenging and integrated research is supported, and excellent doctoral human resources capable of working in various careers are developed.
After a process of review, 40 support projects were selected.
In response to this undertaking, in fiscal 2021 we began implementing a program titled the AGU Future Eagle Project (Business Management: Professor and Assistant President, Electronics and Electronics Faculty of Science and Engineering, Shinji Huang). Based on our philosophy of "cultivating human resources who have the wisdom and ability to discover and solve problems on their own together with the necessary understanding from a global perspective," we will combine the existing doctoral student support system with the new training program conducted under this program, with the aim of cultivating excellent doctoral students with the potential to open up new academic fields in the future under the themes of "integration of arts and sciences” and "internationality."
Specifically, the government will: ① provide an environment in which you can take the initiative to concentrate on your own research and deepen a high degree of specialization; ② create a system in which research across areas can be undertaken; ③ create a system to support the construction of cross-cutting and international networks; and ④ create opportunities to attain possible diverse career paths by making use of advanced expertise.
