1) Theme
Education for Sustainable Development
Overseas Internship / Agricultural, Food and Environment
2) Objective
  We report on the conditions and outcomes of training programs in the areas of food, the environment, bioresources, and food production. We use information from businesses, universities, and laboratories conducting global operations and internships overseas, particularly in Southeast Asia, a region increasingly receptive to Japanese food production technologies and with which close relationships are expected going forward. We also discuss the opinions of experts from national research institutes on new training programs for nurturing students who thrive in industry, government, and academia in the future. We draw connections with the nurturing of personnel capable of building new global innovations.
