      Our Philosophy

      Surrounded by three big rivers flowing into Seto Inland Sea and Chugoku Mountains, Okayama’s geographical setting offers an affluent and peaceful lifestyle. Besides serving as the transportation hub of the Chugoku and Shikoku regions, the city of Okayama has also flourished as an industrial center with attracting history and culture.
      The Academic and General Okayama University Regional Research Association (AGORA) was founded in November 2011. Since its establishment, we have been working closely with the local community to promote community planning, human resource development, and innovations by combining local natural and social resources with academic infrastructure of Okayama University (OU). Our mission is to transform Okayama into an “academic capital” domestically and internationally, we believe it will play a crucial role to shape our future.
