Academic exchange agreements and joint education agreements were also concluded with Dalian Foreign Language University and Fujian Normal University in 2006, with Dalian Institute of science and Technology and Dalian Neusoft Institute of Information in 2008, with Dalian Ocean University, Beijing City University, Central Academy of Fine Arts in 2009, and Beijing University of Post and Telecommunications in 2010. Since 2009, based on an exchange agreement, KCGI has been dispatching faculty to Fujian Normal University to conduct multimedia/network-related classes, and actively promoting exchange.
In recent years, ties with Chinese companies have been further strengthened, including internships at local companies in China, information sessions for Chinese companies at school, and the establishment of various cooperation systems with local companies to expand opportunities to play an active role in their home countries as highly skilled professionals.

Leading Information Security in Asia
Korea University Graduate School of Information Security・Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute
In November 2004, we concluded an academic exchange agreement with Korea's No.1 graduate school, the Graduate School of Information Security of Korea University, which fosters specialists in the field of information security. Taking this opportunity, the two schools co-hosted the Japan-ROK Joint Seminar on "Utilization of ICT Applications in the Ubiquitous Society in Japan and Korea: Focusing on Information Security" in Jeju Island, the Republic of Korea in August 2005. At the same time, we also formed a business exchange alliance with the Korean Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI), the largest non-profit government-affiliated information and telecommunications research institute (Ministry of Knowledge Economy) in Republic of Korea, for the purpose of conducting joint research and development in the field of ubiquitous information security. In October 2006, we co-hosted the "Seminar on the use of information security technology in the ubiquitous society" at KCGI, a joint seminar organized by Japan, the Republic of Korea and Vietnam. In addition, a Japan-Korea Joint Seminar on u-society security was held in Jeju Island, Republic of Korea in 2007, and a Japan-ROK Joint Seminar on u-society IT security was held in Kyoto in October 2008 with the support of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science.
Promoting people-to-people exchanges in the IT sector
National Jeju University
In November 2010, an agreement was signed with Jeju National University in Jeju, Korea to operate a dual degree program, under which credits can be exchanged between students at both universities. The objective is to develop advanced ICT human resources in both Japan and ROK, and promote the entire Asian region. We will actively utilize a remote lecture system via the Internet.
The characteristics of the agreement include (1) the conclusion of an agreement between Jeju National University, one of the eight national universities in Republic of Korea, and a private university in Japan (professional graduate school); and (2) the first conclusion between Japan and Republic of Korea in terms of comprehensive credit transfer between the two countries, without limiting the transfer to a specific graduate school or major.
In September 2006, KCGI and Jeju National University concluded an Academic Exchange Agreement for the purpose of education and research in the field of ICT, as well as mutual exchanges of people. In September 2008, they also signed an agreement on the construction of a Japan-ROK cyber campus on the Internet that both students can attend.
Jeju International University (Former Jeju University of Industry and Information)
In October 2009, the KCG Group signed an agreement with Jeju University of Industry and Information of the Republic of Korea on a joint educational project for the purpose of fostering highly skilled professionals in the IT field with an international perspective and cultural exchanges between Japan and the Republic of Korea. Jeju University of Industry and Information is the only IT university in Jeju, which is the successor of the first private vocational school established in Jeju, and provides practical education with the aim of developing human resources who will lead the knowledge information era. It merged with Tamna University in 2012 and became Jeju International University. In the future, we will cooperate with each other to improve the level of computer and Japanese language education based on this friendly relationship. We will develop projects such as the management of joint educational programs, joint research, and the holding of academic study meetings.
The circle of joint research has expanded to Europe.

An agreement was reached to exchange academic materials and publications as well as teachers and students and cooperate in education and research. Based on this agreement, we implemented as a joint project called the "Analysis of the decision-making process of women choosing computers and ICT-related fields: case studies of Japan and the Czech Republic" with the Graduate School of Economics and Management of the University of Pardubice. In relation to this research, the Tateisi Science and Technology Promotion Foundation provided grants for international technology exchange, and in December of the same year, a discussion was held on the research results at the University of Pardubice.
