Technology for Welfare Project

We who are living in modern society find that our lifestyles and our values are diversifying. The aim of our project is to solve with technology the inconveniences and issues we sometimes feel, to propose a new ways of living, and to work toward a future filled with hope. In this project, we are not limited to a narrow definition of welfare typified by support for people living with disabilities; rather, we deal with a broader theme. Our emphasis is to engage in mutual exchange with people and organizations related to our chosen topic. After that, we will discover concrete proposals and solutions based on our discussions with other members. Another important point that we will consider is whether or not our efforts will result in a merely temporary improvement, or if things will be better even after we finish the project. We will try to adopt a stance that allows us to see from a broad perspective that which the person concerned may not have considered before.

Research Plan

We will prepare opportunities to exchange opinions with members of the groups we collaborate with so that the project members can put forward proposals to deal with the issues they want to address. As we plan our schedule, we take into consideration the dates of conferences and exhibitions.
