The IEICE is expected to bolster up Japanese ICT industry, which has one of the biggest employment capacity of more than 2.5 million, amid the changing environment of global competition. The most important mission of the IEICE is to enhance the activities of innovative and competitive R&D, and to nurture excellent human resources with a capability of information dissemination. For this purpose, I am committed to play an important role of accounting in this crucial timing of innovating organization and operation of the IEICE.
Dr. Motoshima received the B.S., M.S., and Dr.Eng degrees in electrical engineering from University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan, in 1980, 1982, and 2003, respectively.
