About us

Osaka University's Center for the Study of Co* Design was established in July 2016.
It is a front-runner of the university's initiative to tackle emerging challenges in contemporary society by fostering innovation.

Our mission is to design mechanisms that facilitate cross-border communication and collaboration among actors from diverse professional fields and citizens, generating innovative knowledge, values, and systems in society.

The asterisk (*) in our name represents our operational principle of openness, dynamism, flexibility, and cross-disciplinarity in approach and expertise.
Our educational programs welcome students from various disciplines, encouraging them to learn beyond their core subjects.
Our research activities feature extensive collaboration with experts in business, government, academia, and other public and private sectors, providing a space for up-to-date intellectual discussions.
We develop stronger connections between the university and the local community through our diverse public seminar programs.
We collaborate with international partners in both business and academic sectors and welcome opportunities for new partnerships

For any questions about the Center, our educational/research activities, and future collaborative opportunities, please contact us.
