 Program Objectives and Strategy

Hiroshima University, Yamaguchi University, Tokushima University and Ehime University formed the Consortium, “World-Class Researcher Development Through Regional Collaboration” (HIRAKU-Global) with the aim of launching a program to develop innovative, influential and impactful researchers in the global community.
The HIRAKU-Global Program selects highly capable tenure-track faculty members at Assistant Professor level (the HIRAKU-Global Faculty Members, (HGFM)) on a yearly basis. Thereafter, the Program provides the selected HGFM with start-up research funding, financial support to promote medium- to long-term research abroad, multiple experienced mentors, skills development opportunities through international collaborative research, etc. The Program will build a platform for the HGFM to establish multiple networks, allow them to be exposed to multi-disciplinary research activities, inspire each other and ultimately lead and manage the Program.
The Program will ensure their successful academic career, enhance their global profile and network, and accelerate international collaborative research. Ultimately, our collective efforts will enhance the global presence of the HIRAKU-Global Member Organizations in the region, as well as western Japan in general.
