Gifu COC+ Project Promotion Consortium Executive Member and Appraisal Meeting

On Tuesday, September 28, 2021, the Center for Collaborative Study with Community, Gifu University hosted an online "Gifu COC+* Project Promotion Consortium Executive Member and Appraisal Meeting."

"Gifu COC+ Project Promotion Consortium" was created to promote the COC+ program titled, "Make a big step at Gifu × bring a plus to Gifu: joint development of a region-oriented business leader." The consortium comprises Gifu University and 12 other relevant bodies and organizations. Its activities continue even after the official implementation term ended.

First, the executive member meeting was held which was attended by representatives of member organizations. They welcomed three new members which joined the consortium this year, namely, Gifu Prefecture Association of Towns and Villages, Gifu Prefecture Association of City Mayors and Gifu Prefecture Internship Conference. The participants made reports on their achievements in FY2020 and planned projects for FY2021. The meeting was followed by the active opinion-exchange by the members. The participants later proposed and agreed with a further extension of the COC+ project implementation period until March 31, 2023. Their decision is going to be discussed by Gifu COC+ Project Promotion Consortium Working Meeting (whose members include presidents of the member organizations).

Next, in the appraisal meeting, selected representatives from each organization announced their assessments for the programs executed in FY2020. An external appraisal for the consortium's activities is planning to be conducted by a special appraisal committee consisting of experts and scholars.
