Philosophy of Advanced Comprehensive Research Organization

Exterior of the Advanced Comprehensive Research Organization Building

There are many social problems and social issues in the world today. Various efforts are being made to solve these problems, but there is by no means one possible measure or means to solve these problems. So to speak, it is required to solve problems that do not have one correct answer, while in order to tackle such problems, active cooperation and cooperation beyond academic fields, that is, people with various specialties are necessary.Also, it is essential to build a research system that integrates humanities and sciences, especially for social issues.

Teikyo University is a comprehensive university with 10 faculties and 11 graduate schools in a wide range of humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences on 5 campuses. You can also build a collaborative system with companies and work together to solve problems.
Based on this recognition, the university has held a research exchange symposium to support the building of collaborative relationships across campuses and faculties. Now, various new joint research buds are beginning to emerge.
Collaborative research within the university will be freely developed based on each campus. In order to further accelerate this, we are currently constructing a new research building in the Itabashi area to utilize it as a place for various collaborative research practices, joint research with industry, and open innovation. The interior of the research building is designed based on Open Laboratory specifications so that you can take on challenges in various new academic fields.

We regard the research style of aiming to solve social issues through research that integrates humanities and sciences as the "advanced", and will challenge various issues at the Advanced Research Institute, which was established in April 2021.
