KUBEC was established based upon these principles, with the aim of promoting international collaboration between Kobe University and universities and research institutes in Europe in the fields of Humanities, Social Science, Natural Sciences and Bio-Medical Sciences.

In July 2015, KUBEC was relocated to the International Building of Vrije Universiteit Brussel, a partner of Kobe University. Here it continues to play the role of a key institute for international collaboration in education and research between Japan and Europe by providing valuable opportunities for international exchange in Europe.
