Comprehensive Academy

A lecture hosted by the Academy

Figure 1We support the development of university research activities and human resources by providing a place for junior faculty members to discover original and novel research ideas based on their own academic interests, regardless of their field of study. We also encourage Academy Scholars to consider the importance of promoting research while being aware of their social expectations and responsibilities.
