What is IA Community?

Shizuoka University and collaborating Central-Eastern European universities are involved in the active exchange of research, students and doctoral courses to improve academic progress and achievement in engineering. The IA Community is a general term that describes the community comprised of the universities, faculty members, students and clerical staff work with IA.

The international conference called Inter-Academia is the keystone of the IA program. The Inter-Academia conference has taken place every year since 2002. IA activities are typically carried out by the faculty of Shizuoka University and it’s sister universities, but IA welcomes a wide range of participants from other research institutions and industries to promote the exchange of knowledge by providing a forum for exchanging novel research results and opinions. The IA Community welcomes the participation of new members in this conference.
