THE Asia Universities Summit 2021

Eiichi Saitoh, M.D., D.M.Sc.
Fujita Health University

I am very proud that Fujita Health University is going to be the first Japanese host of the Times Higher Education Asia Universities Summit.
Since the university was founded, our philosophy has been “Our creativity for the people”, which means we encourage the creativity of each individual. We continue to advance clinical practice, develop human resources to contribute to society, and carry out research to make the world a better place.
Our academic programmes and research facilities correspond to the needs and challenges of society in the fields of medicine, healthcare, health, hygiene and healthcare management. We also collaborate with the world’s leading academic institutions and industries in order to advance medicine and medical technology. Our partners include Johns Hopkins University, University of Münster, National Taiwan University, United Arab Emirates University, Toyota Motor Corporation, Canon Medical Systems and Fujifilm, among others.
By hosting the THE Asia Universities Summit 2021, we hope to create new encounters with leaders in different fields of education and research as well as medicine and medical fields. I hope that it will bring innovation not only to Fujita Health University, but also to higher education nationally in Japan. I am truly delighted to meet people we know and people we will get to know at the summit.
