Support for Mathematical Olympiad and Olympiad in Informatics (Japan)
Fujitsu supports the Mathematical Olympiad Foundation of Japan and the Japanese Committee for the International Olympiad in Informatics (the latter being a non-profit organization) to help discover and foster valuable human resources who will play leading roles in the future development of society. The Mathematical Olympiad Foundation of Japan was established in 1991 in order to discover gifted mathematicians for selection and entry as national representatives in the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) and to further develop their skills. The foundation is also committed to helping improve and promote education in mathematics from an international perspective. Fujitsu provided the basic funds for the establishment of the Foundation along with two other companies and one individual.
Meanwhile, the Japanese Committee for the International Olympiad in Informatics was established in 2005 to train human resources in support of Japan's mathematics and information science sector. It provides support for participants of the International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI), a programming contest for junior and senior high school students. As a supporting member, Fujitsu provides assistance in the committee's operation.
Macmillan pro-bono tech projects (UK)
During a 2 year charity partnership with Macmillan, the UK’s leading cancer supporter charity, Fujitsu used its core skills to create a lasting legacy for the charity through pro-bono co-creation technology projects. Fujitsu supported Macmillan in laying the foundations for a single technology platform to transform how volunteers give their time to the charity; this platform reaches 25,000 + users and has created transformative change for volunteers and volunteer managers. The project have had a revolutionary impact for the charity and all work to empower those living with cancer and their families, Macmillan volunteers and employees. This work was awarded silver recognition at the Corporate Engagement Awards, 2019.
Support for Student Contests at the Kazan Aviation Institute (Russia)
Fujitsu Russia Global Delivery Center (GDC) is supporting the Kazan Aviation Institute's Student Initiative "ITEAM Student Project Competition". Fujitsu employees perform master classes on “mobile programming”, “machine learning”, “project management”, “information security”, “risk management”, and other topics through master classes, and helped students submit business ideas to contests. These diverse courses improve student skills and help improve prototypes. Products created by the contest include food delivery apps, Kazan City tour apps, and Telegram Bots.
The strong relationship between Fujitsu Russia GDC and the University through a series of these activities will open up the possibility of students taking internships and job roles at Fujitsu in the future.
The Fujitsu JAIMS is a non-profit educational foundation that provides graduate level education. Its predecessor organization, the "JAIMS" was established in Hawaii in 1972 with the objective of fostering human resources that would serve as bridges between Japan and the United States. Since its establishment, it has produced about 23,000 graduates from 55 countries. In 2012, to strengthen ties with Asia, we established the Fujitsu JAIMS Foundation in Japan, and will fulfill its mission of contributing to creating a future full of richness and vision through training personnel capable of creating new value for society (innovation) in the Asia-Pacific region. Fujitsu has contributed working capital and has an organization within the company that has been supporting Fujitsu-JAIMS' activities. In addition to comprehensive support of the Foundation, Fujitsu has been coordinating with Fujitsu-JAIMS by incorporating its own practical wisdom, ICT, and expertise into the Foundation's activities. Fujitsu has thus been pushing forward with its social contribution activities, furthering promotion of academic and educational fields as well as international exchange.
