E-JUST was established under the cooperation of the Egyptian and the Japanese government, and the member universities of the Japanese university consortium have been providing support. Ritsumeikan University, a member of the consortium, has supported the human resource development through administrative staff training in the past. From this year, the cooperation has stepped up to support the enhancement of the university administrative function, and Ritsumeikan has sent one administrative staff member to work at E-JUST.
