Research Institute for STEM Human Resources
The value of STEM people has never been so high than in 21st century. It is particularly true in Japan. But the public resources for all levels of education have been shrinking in the past 20 years. We will conduct research on the linkage between all types of educational resources and their impacts on wellbeing of people and society in general. We are particularly interested in the following three issues, which we have decided to focus in the research projects we will conduct in the next few years. The first is what make engineers more productive, creative and happy. The second is what is the relationship between the institutional STEM education and the economic and social state of its nation. The third is the quantity, quality and inter-working of health professional and their impacts on patient’s quality of life and the national expenditure on health. We will conduct those researches with domestic and international collaborators.
