”HIRAKU-PF”, the Young Researchers’ Portfolio

HIRAKU-PF_enThe Young Researchers’ Portfolio or HIRAKU-PF was launched on March 25, 2016, as a core IT system to develop the consortium “Home for Innovative Researchers and Academic Knowledge Users (HIRAKU)”.

It provides young doctorate/postdoc researchers with a tool to recognize their strengths and areas for improvement, whilst managing their skill development against short-term/long-term objectives. It will eventually help them to establish and realize diversified career paths.

It also presents them with the opportunities to showcase their research activities and a chance to interact with other researchers beyond their research areas or with private sectors outside academia. They can receive a variety of information on career development and skill enhancement, relevant to young researchers.
