To increase the number of new female researchers is one of the aims of our project.
The cultivation of the next generation of female researchers is also an agenda for Japan where the population of female researchers are still very small.
The University of Yamanashi has set up a career development program to foster new female researchers.
For the program, our office invites female researchers and engineers who play an active role in each field, and holds events for the students to directly receive information and guidance from their experienced senior. This may help the students become closer to the “future self” they are pursuing.
