As part of the network activities, several seminars for the general public on the support of working PhDs will be held.

The first seminar was themed “‘How to maximize PhD at Mercari?’ What is the future of the Mercari Group scaled by PhD” and we have discussed the expectations of PhD holders from the perspective of Mercari and the reality in the actual scene, and disseminate the value of supporting working adults to advance doctoral programs.

In this second session, we are inviting several university representatives to discuss "The Future of PhD from the Perspective of Universities" in order to know the expectations universities have for companies and to explore tips for ideal industry-academia-government collaboration.


The event will be held online.
