 According to the Ministry of Education, the three universities of Otaru Commerce, Obihiro University of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine, and Kitami Institute of Technology in Hokkaido have set out the direction of corporate integration in light of the rapid population decline, but the integration will not only strengthen the management base but also stand alone. It claims that it will be possible to contribute to the local community, and that it will be possible to establish an education and research system that integrates literary sciences and different fields, which is required in the new era.

 Nagoya University and Gifu University, which are discussing integration in the Tokai region, are the world's leading research universities for integration, saying that the university will play a role in regional creation amid drastic changes in industrial structure and society.
