It was established in 2019 as a collaborative organization of six domestic universities for the purpose of conducting research on child poverty. From Hokkaido University, the Child Development Clinical Research Center attached to Faculty of Education is participating. Each of the six universities is conducting a large-scale survey, and it is now possible to share their data for more detailed analysis. Hokkaido University conducted a large-scale survey in collaboration with Hokkaido and Sapporo City from 2016 to 2017, and plans to conduct a second large-scale survey in 2021. A pamphlet summarizing the survey results from 2016 to 2017 can be viewed on the website of the Child Development Clinical Research Center.
