Under SiMS program, which aims to produce doctoral leaders who can play an active role in industry, the second opinion sharing meeting with companies was held on April 13 (Wed), 2016, following last December’s first forum. There were 10 participants from 8 companies, mainly managers in charge of research and development and personnel affairs in chemical and bio-based companies.
We exchanged opinion frankly about personnel development which SiMS aims and asked companies’ employment situation for doctorate personnel.
They accepted our opinion how we aim to produce doctoral leaders by Industry-Academia collaboration and agreed that we need to consider a specific way.
We hope continuous industry-leading connection.
Next, we are planning a meeting with the participation of SiMS students.
