TUAT is promoting the globalization of our cutting-edge educational research in the respective interdisciplinary fields of Agriculture and Engineering. In 2016, to strengthen our role to “achieve competitive research capabilities on a global level”, TUAT reorganized the Global Innovation Research Organization into the Institute of Global Innovation Research (GIR), including two organizations: the “Women’s Future Development Organization” and the “Organization for Promotion of Tenure-track System”. We facilitate international collaborative research in the three priority areas of “Food”, “Energy” and “Life Science” and endeavor to enhance the further globalization of younger researchers. We invite the world’s leading researchers from abroad for each area as core members and build a system so that TUAT researchers and graduate students can conduct collaborative research which will boost the number of internationally co-authored papers and enhance to foster global-innovative human resources.
In April 2018, we introduced a flexible personnel system for promoting and fostering young researchers. We encourage selected ones to participate in GIR international collaborative research and give them the opportunity to study abroad, so that we can promote development of the future globalization of younger researchers.
In April 2020, for further enhancement, we established the Global Research Hub, a new international joint research center, which comprises research units that evolved from strategic research teams.
We will make further contributions to fortify the university’s potential and to build the foundation for the university system reform.
We appreciate your cooperation and support in domestic and foreign affairs, as well as inside and outside the university.
Dean, Institute of Global Innovation Research
