Efforts of Nagaoka University of Technology Toward Achieving the SDGs

SDGs Logo

Nagaoka University of Technology has been actively engaged in activities that lead to the achievement of SDGs. At first glance, engineering universities and SDGs seem unrelated, but in fact they are very closely related.
For example, the problem of environmental pollution can be remedied by the latest technology and research. We believe that Nagaoka University of Technology should cooperate in solving all the problems in the world that must not focus solely on the development of its own technology and science.
Concretely, what kind of activities have been carried out include SDGs idea contests aimed at the revitalization of industries based on local specialties, the development of SDGs educational materials for children, and the holding of the International Conference (STI-Gigaku) to announce studies that will lead to the achievement of the SDGs.
This activity was highly appreciated by the United Nations, and was appointed as the World-Hub University in 2018 by the United Nations for the Academic Impact SDG 9 (Industry, innovation and infrastructure). One hub university is chosen for each goal. Only 17 universities were selected in East Asia worldwide. During the three-year term, we will further strengthen the development of new technologies and take responsibility and work as a university that will serve as a model for promoting stable industrialization for the people of the world.
