Joint Research

Core Station

Niigata University also includes intra-department joint research, referred to as the Core Station. It allows lecturers and groups, irrespective of existing campus organizations such as faculties and departments, to engage in teaching and research. The aim of this is to develop a high-level university education program and a superior research base. Lecturers from the Faculty of Humanities who act as project representatives are introduced below.

Interdisciplinary Research Institute Projects

Another joint research organization at Niigata University is the Interdisciplinary Research Institute. It was established in 2003 with the purpose of creating a multi-disciplinary research system encompassing cutting-edge research areas as a means of pioneering new fields [[of scholarship]], responding to societal demands related to current problems, and improving the level of the research and education system at our university. Lecturers from the Faculty of Humanities who are involved with this project are introduced below.
