Regional Core Innovation Project
Regional Innovation Strategy Promotion Region.The Ministry of Education, Ministry of Economy, as well as the Ministry of Agriculture, in 2011, with the purpose of creating regional innovation, selected regions holding proactive excellent plans as “The Regional Innovation Strategy Promotion Region.”
With the purpose of long term creation of new regional innovation, the Innovation Strategy Promotion Conference was established, and settled on innovation plans are proactively implemented as projects. According to the potential of each region, they are divided into “International Competitiveness Region” and “Research Function/Advanced Industrial Accumulation Region.”
At the base of Mt. Fuji, the Pharma Valley Plan Promotion Region is an “International Competitiveness Region.”
International Competitiveness Region
