Major initiatives

Developing materials for financial and economic education

For the purpose of widely applying the results of this joint research in accessible forms, we have created textbooks and video materials to help students learn how money works, the role of banks, and the basics of economics. They are now in actual use in various locations.

We have also created textbooks for special support schools to aid the efforts of children with special needs to independently participate in society.
