Long-Term Internship Program


The Program for the Practical Training and Engagement of Innovators is aimed to foster young researchers that explore new domains beyond the boundaries of their specialization, be it in science technology or agriculture, medical care, humanities, or social science, with high consciousness and enthusiasm to change society. As a part of the program to pursue its objectives, the Consortium offers a long-term internship program to young researchers so that they can contribute themselves to resolve real problems in companies or society, improve their practical skills and competencies, and expand their career options in the future.

* This program aims to identify any gaps in experiences or competencies of young researchers based on their background, research activities, career plans and so forth, and promote them to acquire opportunities to fill those gaps, which eventually nurtures human resources who can maximize their competencies in wide range of opportunities outside the academia.
