Hokkaido University GI-CoRE GSB
Hokkaido University established the Global Institution for Collaborative Research and Education (GI-CoRE) as a faculty organization under the direct control of the President that brings together world-class teaching staff from around the world and within the University. It aims to promote international collaborative research and education that leverages the University’s strengths and distinctive features, and to provide support for international collaborative research and education being furthered independently by faculties or schools.
At present, GI-CoRE consists of six global stations; which are Global Stations for Quantum Medical Science and Engineering (GSQ), Zoonosis Control (GSZ), Food, Land and Water Resources (GSF), Soft Matter (GSS), Big Data and Cybersecurity (GSB) and Arctic Research (GSA).
GSB was launched in April 2016 as an interdisciplinary research hub to cover big data, information network, and cybersecurity, promoting international collaborative research with the University of Massachusetts Amherst (UMass) and the University of Technology Sydney (UTS). This global station will also be a base to establish a new graduate-level course, Division of Cyber Informatics, and foster “IT top-gun” human resources who can actively and globally work on information-oriented society.
