What is Challenge & Creation (C&C)?
A university-wide project that promotes student ideas and research over the course of a year with subsidies.
Challenge & Creation (C&C) is a university-wide project that subsidizes the realization of unique ideas and research projects by Kyushu University students, with the theme of “Creating a wind of creativity and challenge from the campus”. Since its start in 1997, it has been held every year and has become a symbolic educational project that demonstrates the uniqueness of Kyushu University. Individuals or groups of students screen their own ideas and research plans and select them based on criteria such as novelty and social impact. Selected teams will receive funding of up to 500,000 yen and aim to realize their plans. After about one year, the results report will be reviewed, and the excellent team will be commended. A total of 1,007 students have participated so far.
This program is supported by the Kyushu University Fund.
