IGNITE (Institute for Global Network Innovation in Technology Education) held The 4th IGNITE seminar, titled "Social implementation of University-Industry Cooperation outputs in Developing Countries through JICA Private Sector Partnership Programs", on March 9th, 2017, with 28 participants from our university and outside.
IGNITE invited Mr. Akira Shibuya (Director, Operation for Japanese SEMs Division Domestic Strategy and Partnership Department of Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA)), Mr. Nobuyuki Konishi (Deputy Director General, Private Sector Partnership and Finance Department/Director, Planning and Portfolio Management Division of Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA)), and Prof. Naoki Uchiyama (Professor, Mechanical Engineering Department, Toyohashi University of Technology).

Some participants provided us with following comments,

"We could understand clear process of how to utilize ODA for entrepreneurship."
"We could clearly gain the concrete JICA public sector partnership programs information and its utilization."
"University-Industry cooperation can be expected to enhance the quality of products by University's technology"
"The university and JICA network (institution and human resource) is very valid when the company would like to open oversea business."

These comments showed us that this seminar was very useful to promote globalization in our university through university-industry cooperation through JICA private sector partnership programs.

IGNITE is planning to hold seminars for providing information about existing state of affairs and future prospects of the world and invite lecturers with extensive knowledge and experience about economy, society, industry, technology, and education in the face of globalization. We welcome any suggestions to formulate the upcoming seminars.
