About Society 5.0 type future technology human resources development business

The purpose of this project is to create a future technology human resource development model that will lead the way into the Society 5.0 era. It will be rooted in the social implementation of future technology through a collaborative system involving technical colleges, companies, local governments, universities, and other organizations.

The business objective of KOSEN-AT is to build a inclusive society through the AT-HUB concept. This is a scheme for the promotion of sustainable community medicine and welfare in addition to the training of specialized AT engineers, alongside conventional approaches taught at technical colleges, such as community-based, problem-solving, and social implementation methods. We will develop personnel who will play an essential part in the Society 5.0 era, helping to fulfill the diverse needs of a diverse society, such as through the integration of AI and other fields.

"Society 5.0" is a "human-centered society that balances economic advancement with the resolution of social problems by a system that highly integrates cyberspace and physical space." It was proposed in the "Fifth Science and Technology Basic Plan" by the Cabinet Office as the future society for which Japan should aim.

Main activities to date

The Japan AT Forum has been held every year since 2014. 

The Forum is a place where engineers, students, and organizations involved in AT (assistive technology), mainly technical college teachers, gather for the research and development of assistive technology and the training of engineers in the field.

Introduced our app to support schools nationwide

We are releasing apps for Android and iOS. These range from apps that provide accessible teaching materials, to those that enable users to create accessible teaching materials for people with disabilities, and others that perform AT functions directly, such as electronic memos for the visually impaired.


About the national KOSEN support equipment development network

Our organization is a collaborative network organized by faculty and students (regular and advanced course students) of technical colleges nationwide (55 campuses), using technology to support the quality of life of the elderly and people with disabilities. We engage in the research and development of support equipment. Utilizing the AT developed at national technical colleges across Japan, we are helping to build a inclusive society in which everyone can participate.

* AT stands for assistive technology, that is, general technology for assisting people with disabilities.
