Center for International Joint Research


International Joint Research Center was established in April 2002 at Kodaira International Campus in Kodaira City, Tokyo, in order to support both Japanese and international researchers who jointly work for the innovative research projects.

Kodaira Campus itself offers a wonderful research environment for foreign researchers and students. Several buildings in Kodaira Campus such as a sports center, “Josui Sports Plaza”, and Cafeteria were built by the donation of Josui-kai, the alumni of Hitotsubashi, having deep understanding towards the long term goal of the university.

At present, International Joint Research Center is the core of the international Asian studies, and aims at pursuing international joint research projects under close mutual cooperation among related national and international institutes, centers, and organizations. Particularly through comprehensive research focusing on social and human sciences, the center has contributed to create international academic research at Hitotsubashi. The center is aiming to enhance the quality of education and research, and intends to contribute to the further progress in advanced research in the international academic world.

In 2007 “Support Office for International Joint Research” was established at Kunitachi campus under the supervision of the International Joint Research Center. The Office professionally engages in support activities for invited international researchers at Hitotsubashi University and offers the information of our international joint researches.
