Ten years after the Great East Japan Earthquake, one of the changes in society is co-creation and collaboration by cross-border human resources.We are recruiting a wide range of IT personnel and positioning them as Social Technology Officers, and we are coordinating the collaboration between Social Technology Officers and NPOs.
In addition, from 2021, as a new approach to co-creation that uses IT to change the future, we have developed a learning and accompaniment program called "NPTech Studio" with Kazuhiro Ohara, author of "Process Economy.
