Operating Structure

Hokkaido University hosts the Central Office for HaRP, which serves as the liaison hub for universities connected to the platform. The administrative bureaus of Japanese members of the Association of Institutions of Higher Education of the Russian Federation and Japan and of universities adopted for the Inter-University Exchange Project act as the Liaison Desks. In this way, HaRP builds a stable cooperative structure for partner universities in Japan.

HaRP will also build a stable cooperative structure for Russian universities. Moscow State University, which leads activities in Russia at the Association of Institutions of Higher Education of the Russian Federation and Japan, will assume Central Office functions in Russia and work with Liaison Desks at other partner universities in Russia.

HaRP will include local governments and companies as members of its Central Office in Japan to make it an organization based on industry-government- academia-financial sector collaboration.
