Hokkaido Intellect Tank (HIT)
In 1975 (Showa 50), the Hokkaido Development Problem Research Committee, the predecessor of the current HIT, was established with the aim of addressing the challenges faced in community development. In 1982 (Showa 57), it merged with the Hokkaido Information Development Study Group, and the name of HIT was given as it was. Already after high economic growth, they were shifting their focus from heavy industry to information technology innovation, experiential tourism and nursing care services. The region was a time when wisdom and preparedness were required. Recognizing that the "development" era was over in 2002, the name was changed to the Hokkaido General Research Committee, and in 2012, it was changed to a general incorporated association.
HIT has analyzed regional issues as an independent think tank since its establishment, and examined and tried countermeasures together with the region while depicting the future. In recent years, the field has expanded not only in Hokkaido, but throughout the country and the world. In order to respond to themes that reflect changes in the times and changes in people's needs, all executives and employees are accumulating mutual training and self-development as research positions.See more
