The DIARE promotes the education of young world-class researchers capable of forging new research areas by merging different disciplines in collaboration with the students' original graduate schools. Specifically, the DIARE selects outstanding students in interdisciplinary areas, provides with financial aid, and improves their research environments.
Furthermore, to cultivate a multifaceted, comprehensive perspective in interdisciplinary areas, the DIARE engages in research and development, planning and supporting interdisciplinary education, developing curricula crossing the boundaries of graduate schools and departments, and providing video lectures. Thus, the DIARE helps advance graduate school education to meet to the demands of the 21st century.
