The Sophia Comparative and International Education Platform (SCIEP)
The Sophia Comparative and International Education Platform (SCIEP) was established as a research hub for comparative and international pedagogy that connects Japan and the world, with Sophia University in Tokyo as its base.
Centering on the project with its secretariat at Sophia University, SCIEP aims to develop education research beyond national borders, and to develop transnational academic exchange activities in collaboration with various educational researchers, research institutions, international organizations, and corporations in Japan and abroad. The activities are supported by the Sophia University Special Promotion Funds for Academic Research. We hope that this platform will be the basis for an expanding network of various educational and research activities for “people-to-people connectivity”.
