◆ Outline of Hi-System
  ● Hi-System is a website for registered members where doctoral course students and young researchers and private companies can communicate with each other. The website was created in order to help doctoral course students and postdoctoral researchers at Hokkaido University to be active in society. Doctoral course students and researchers can use the “My Page” feature for self-promotion by listing information on their skills and/or research seeds, and companies can inform researchers of their corporate research activities as well as their needs for doctoral course students and researchers and research skills. It is a site for mutual communication.
  ● Hi-System also aims at reforming the systems, environment and management of the research conducted at Hokkaido University toward improving the university’s global competitiveness. In light of this, a database is compiled by using information on the seeds and needs for research collected on and off campus, as well as information on researchers, research institutes and companies. Use of the website and the database will help to facilitate collaboration between the university and domestic/foreign companies, and global development to trigger innovation.
