ABOUT THE PROJECT
SUN/SixERS is the network of six national universities, international education and research system in Japan. It composes of Chiba University, Niigata University, Kanazawa University, Okayama University, Nagasaki University, and Kumamoto University. These six universities have long histories and traditions from which have grown their excellent records of education and research. Their world class research results have been the seeds for contributions to Japanese education, academic research, and Japanese and international society. In order to nurture the further development of highly trained graduates for leadership in a globalizing world, the Six National Universities have newly established a mechanism for cooperation which eventually gave birth to “SUN/SixERS”.
