As of November 22, Kyushu University became Japan’s tenth ‘designated national university corporation.’ Kyudai is now the only university in the Kyushu-Okinawa region with such recognition; it enjoys expanded opportunities to develop business from its research projects and pays higher salaries to collaborate with researchers. The designation was given by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology to increase international competitiveness. Source: Nikkei / Asahi / Kyushu University
