Mizuho India Japan Study Centre (MIJSC) is celebrating its Foundation Day on 14th September 2021, marking its successful entry to the fifth year of its operations. MIJSC (earlier known as India Japan Study Centre) was founded with the aim to become a leading research and networking hub to pursue international, interdisciplinary, and comprehensive research on mutual areas of interest between India and Japan, and to provide students, researchers, business managers and policy makers with a deeper understanding of Japanese and Indian businesses.
The theme for this year’s Foundation Day is “Connect, Explore & Transform”. This virtual event is divided into three sessions, and each session will look into this theme in detail.
The programme includes keynote speeches by the Honorable Toshihide Ando, Minister and Deputy Chief of Mission, Embassy of Japan in India; and Ambassador Sanjay Kumar Verma, Embassy of India in Japan, followed by the addresses from other dignitaries and Chief Guests.
In the first session, we would be sharing the milestones of our activities till date followed by messages from many dignitaries including Keynote address of Ambassador to Japan and Deputy Ambassador to India. In the second session, we would have a message from Consulate General of Japan, Bengaluru followed by sharing of our findings through research funded projects and webinars of subject experts. In the third session, we would be sharing a two major game changing projects that could potentially change the SME landscape and engineering education paradigm in India and Japan.
