Many countries, in the contemporary world, are putting forth their whole energy in promoting the development of science technology in an efficient way to enforce the countries’ competitiveness. Among such of their efforts, one of the most significant phenomena is that their governments, universities and industries are making tremendous efforts to cultivate human resources in science technology. In Japan’s case, during the second term of the Science Technology Policy, they invested heavily in four areas including biotechnology, communications, environmental engineering and nanotechnology/materials engineering, all of which have great impact in science, economy and society. Japan also celebrated four Nobel prizes laureates during the year 2000 to 2002 alone, resulting in boosting the morale of the manpower working in science & technology.

Moreover, cultivation of talented engineering manpower is one of the major tasks that the Japanese government intends to continuously pursue to achieve, and to make this happen, they are promoting establishment of the engineering education of superior quality through academic-industrial cooperation, cultivation of management of talented manpower and maintenance of various systems to recruit splendid foreign human materials.

Therefore, at the moment, it is important for us to know what we should do and how we can achieve our purposes in order for the promotion of knowledge based industry, which will be the potential power for future developments, and to establish proper policies and roadmaps so that the cooperation between the government, related authorities and manpower in the field shall be smooth.
