Enhancement of Entrepreneurial Environment for Entrepreneurship Education
Establish an entrepreneurship consultation service at each university to connect and collaborate with the government contact “PlusOne”. Promote the sharing and maintenance of university regulations related to startups at each university. Tohoku Consortium Prototype Coordination Office(TPCO） will be used to coordinate the creation of various types of prototypes in cooperation with public testing centers and small and medium-sized enterprise promotion organizations in each municipality. Ensure liaison channels with public testing laboratories in each municipality, with the cooperation of all joint and cooperating institutions participating in this program and the Tohoku Center of the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST). Create a database of the infrastructure available at each institution for prototyping, and coordinate desk studies and actual prototyping to enable students and researchers who wish to start a business to materialize their ideas (including prototyping), regardless of institution or location.
Establish and operate the Michinoku University Network for Entrepreneurial Support (MuNES) to strongly promote the above efforts.
