The Third Open Seminar


The Third Open Seminar: Internationalization of Local Universities for Local/Regional Revitalization

Amid significant social changes and transformations, such as the arrival of a global knowledge-based society, the shift to the fourth industrial revolution, and a declining population, the role of local universities is being re-examined on the theme of higher education internationalization.

The main objective of the third open seminar is to elucidate the strategic internationalization process of local universities as agents of local/regional revitalization and development in Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan. Ultimately, a new non-Western model of higher education internationalization will be explored.
