What is the Tsunagu Research Project?

“Tsunagu” in Japanese means to connect. Tsunagu Research Project’s main essence is for school students specifically, middle and high school students in ASEAN and Japan to get connected and collaborate with each other to practice research skills to help in solving social issues that exist to continue producing good solutions. It is the way of creating a knowledge-sharing circle according to the respective experience and expertise of young researchers by creating a knowledge circle consisting of sharing experience, working together, and discussing ideas. This is the unique platform for educational projects which allows the engagement between students by sharing knowledge.
