Through this project, the University of Tsukuba through ICR is requesting the cooperation from universities of all the continents of the world to develop a global strategy to cultivate synergy and take initiative in this exciting endeavor. Aside from SDG 10, ICR is committed to participating in taking action to help all the SDGs. The first meeting between ICR and UNESCO took place in Paris in November 2018. In January 2019, the first international meeting of the cluster heads was held in Paris at the UNESCO headquarters.
