Human Capital

For Japan, a nation with scarce resources, to maintain and strengthen economic vitality and innovation and increase its growth potential by using its advantages amid a declining population resulting from a rapidly aging society and intensifying global competition among other factors, a significant key is how to utilize its human resources. We will conduct multifaceted, comprehensive research on ideal labor market systems to increase worker incentive and capability; reconstruction of employment institutions and systems from a full life-cycle perspective from early childhood education through higher education; human resources development in employment years; and utilization of elderly as human resources as well as from the perspective of promoting diversity including increased women's participation.
