An educational institution that can provide an environment all over the world where students can come up with research topics and immerse in that, will become the driving force to gain the skills and knowledge that will create a positive future for the society and mankind.
At the Manai Institute of Science and Technology (for short: Manai former: ISSJ), we aim to change the concept of a traditional school, to build something where students’ interests and research projects become the core of learning.
- Students will be able to learn whenever and however, through questioning, receiving lectures and collaborating.
- Students can choose from lectures and classes, which will help deepen and bring in new ideas to their research field.
- Students can also connect to applicable researchers, while also having access to the state of the art laboratory and equipment.
Manai is not only focused on the physical resources such as facilities and tools, but also in putting our best efforts to providing the right human resources as well.
Manai strongly believes that, the new educational institution will produce people with the power to change the future and become an accelerator to lead society better. To establish this and provide an educational opportunity as such to students, a vast amount of wisdom and cooperation is necessary in additional to the financial support. Instead of having an investor or government support founding this educational institution, Manai aims to build sustainably through multiple people and entities to support this initiative and help it grow together.
Manai is a new social experiment, that creates a chain of reactions from various learning networks, where everyone freely connects without barriers – such as stereotypes, customs, and psychological restrictions. We look forward to collaborating with people and entities whom we can share this community and vision with.

“Talent is something the society breeds and using those talents for the society is how to give back”
is the shared understanding who will act as a “Senpai” and support the students.
Each student who pass the assessment period and enroll to Manai will be assigned their own “Senpai.”
“Senpai,” as experienced member of the society, will help lead the students in their activities.
Specific roles of “Senpai” are:
- Building relationship with the student
- Financial support for the student’s learning
- Providing access to their network
“Senpai” will be able to give back to the society through the talented Manai student - expanding their communities and field through the student.
We believe that for the students during their impressionable times being able to receive support and walk through this time together, will be extremely memorable and impactful.
