Japanese society seems to be in a recession after peaking in the 1980’s when people regarded Japan as “number one”, according to various statistical data and social indexes. I believe the potential for breaking through the condition lies in the sparkling energy and sensitivity of the young.

Strong international competition in recruiting young able people who have a full of curiosity and passion has been growing in intensity in the world. Because the world realized that the intellectual and technological innovation and development of human resources are essential to ensure the continuous development of human society with a high quality of culture and civilization for future.

Japan - the place where the fifth basic taste “Umami” was discovered, where “Washoku” (a traditional dietary culture of Japan) was registered as a UNESCO intangible world heritage, and where attentive hospitality is well known. This is also where a taste sensor has been developed.

In order for Kyushu University to become a truly international research and education center in this remote area of Japan, Fukuoka, we must have world-class research capabilities and a diversity education system with research backbone. Especially, we deeply need the human resources to achieve that.
