"Functional Enhancement of Faculty of Engineering in Developing Countries through University-Industry Cooperation" in MEXT International Cooperation Initiative Project

Establishing internationally competitive and mature industries is often a challenging issue for many developing countries.

Financial restrictions of their governments often hinder adequate investments to education and research in universities.

In such a case, it is deemed significant to enhance functions of engineering universities in developing countries by accelerating their university-industry cooperation.

With support from MEXT (Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, Japan) under its International Cooperation Initiative program, ICCEED conducted this project from FY2007 till FY2009 to study and establish a system to promote sustainable university-industry cooperation with University of Moratuwa (Sri Lanka) acting as the model university, and in March 2010 formulated the Guidelines for University-Industry-Government Cooperation Promotion Projects in Developing Countries.
