Human Capital

Amid the rapid aging of its society, intensifying global competition, and recovery from the Great East Japan Earthquake, utilizing its human resources is a significant key to Japan maintaining and strengthening its economic dynamism and increasing its growth potential, as a nation relatively lacking in natural resources. This program will carry out multifaceted, comprehensive research on measures for strengthening human capital and human resource capabilities, from a full life-cycle perspective including ideal labor market systems to increase worker incentive and ability, early childhood education through higher education, human-resources development in employment years, and utilization of elderly human resources.
