About Kyushu University Asia Week 2021
Kyushu University is located in Fukuoka, the city which has prospered as Japan’s gateway to continental Asia from ancient times. In light of Fukuoka’s geographical and historical characteristics, Kyushu University has made a focus on Asia a part of its mission since it was founded, and the University has a long history of collaboration with Asian universities. Based on our achievement in Asia-related studies as well as our expertise on Asia, Kyushu University has promoted further interactions with universities and other institutions in Asia.
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed our world, including how to communicate and collaborate with HEIs around the world. Last year, “Kyushu University Asia Week 2020” took place for the first two weeks of September, with a cumulative total of over 2,500 participants. The event was able to offer various opportunities to work together toward the new normal.
Kyushu University Asia Week 2021 will take place from 13 to 27 October. This year’s theme is ” BUILDING OUR FUTURE – A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE “. We are looking forward to your participation.
