About SciREX

GIST: HUB of the SciREX Program

As the Hub of the 5 institutions, GIST develops human resources who can exercise leadership in the planning, drafting, and implementation of STI policy, and who can undertake policy research in the same field. GIST also takes the lead in developing "Science for STI Policy" besides nurturing policymaking human resources. Leveraging its networks with related government ministries and institutions inside and outside Japan, GIST leads collaboration among the Hub Institutions, and drives the development of academic domains related to "Science for STI Policy" as well as practice in society and the formation of communities.
