Hokkaido University has been appointed for the “Project to Strengthen Assistance for the Creation of University Seeds and Needs (Innovation Dialogue Promotion Program).”
The project aims to foster facilitators who can develop methods for dialogue that fosters interactive action plans and who can create places for such dialogues to take place.
Further, the Hokkaido University URA Station Project Team plans to develop a “future center” at the university through the project. The “future center” is expected to realize “innovations born from Hokkaido University”.

As the kickoff meeting of the project, a workshop based on the “Future Search” method will be held near Sapporo. The overnight meeting will be held from 1:00 p.m., October 19, through noon, October 20, 2013.
The accommodation expenses will be paid by the project.

What is innovation?
What is innovation dialogue?

What can the university do with its “future center”?
We invite teaching and other staff of Hokkaido University, as well as URAs in Hokkaido, to discuss these questions with us.
