Established on 1 January 2017, the egHUB objective intersection of people and ideas to design and disseminate better living environments. The eghub serves as an in-house center of the
Faculty of Design housing 27 researchers as hub members, whose research fields span from humanities, social sciences, design, landscaping and architecture. The hub is the center of a network connecting more than 10 overseas universities. While collaborating with many overseas researchers and students, the hub will work on improving the global environment through the sharing of issues we faced, and the current activities of education and research.
The hub is involved in the environment from the perspectives of humanity and society where researches are conducted in such a way that would eventually contribute to the global environment; especially in the Asian region. In this regard, the Japanese support for developing countries, or the framework of the UN’s Sustainable Development Agenda 2030 etc. are indispensable.
