HOMEIPA:Exploratory IT Human Resources Project (The MITOH Program)
IPA undertakes the Exploratory IT Human Resources Project (The MITOH Program) for actively identifying and developing outstanding persons with creativity who can play key roles in creating next-generation IT markets. To date, in software-related fields a total of 176 people have been accredited as Super Creators, who are individuals with excellent capabilities.
The MITOH Program aims to discover and develop outstanding human resources called Super Creators. Specifically, these are persons possessing creative ideas and skills for achieving software innovation and who can put these ideas and skills to use. The MITOH Program is carried out under the auspices of project managers with outstanding skills and achievements. We strive to establish an environment for ongoing human resources development, such as having persons accredited as Super Creators participate in identifying other prospective Super Creators. At the same time, we promote collaboration with industrial sectors to enable Super Creators to utilize their capabilities in transforming ideas into business, such as starting up businesses or commercializing development achievements.
Super Creators discovered through this program implemented by IPA are expected to play active roles as world-class IT human resources that help support Japan's IT industry during the next generation.
