Kyoto University started the Inter-University Exchange project in 2020 to foster human resources to engage in advanced innovation in various fields in order to facilitate the realization of the sustainable development goals. This project began under the collaboration of Kyoto University and Tokyo University of Foreign Studies with the purpose of initiating the “Formation of Platforms for Promoting Transdisciplinary Human Resources for SDGs-Oriented Innovation in Africa” and “Innovative Africa: Educational Networking Programs for Human Resource Development in Africa’s SDGs.” CAAS cooperates with these programs to develop human resources in Japan and Africa who can use their advanced academic expertise to drive business, policy, and social activities.
