While the importance of further development as a maritime nation has been called for since about 10 years ago, most of the industries in the ocean field are heavy industries such as fishing, aquaculture, shipbuilding, merchant marine, offshore power generation, and seabed resource mining, in addition to the fisheries industry. The ocean is still a place where there is abundant room to explore the possibilities of new industries and technologies.

In this context, three ocean projects were launched in 2017 as a joint project of the Nippon Foundation and RIVANES, with the objectives of fostering the next generation, research and development, and creating new industries. In this session, a university-launched venture that is taking on the challenge of a new business based on its own research findings in the ocean and a team that has formed an ultra-disciplinary R&D structure to develop innovative technology for seafloor topographic mapping will take the stage to discuss the future of the ocean.

Advance registration is required to attend the lecture, so please register as soon as possible.

What is the Hyper Interdisciplinary Conference?

Since 2002, when RIVERNESS was founded, we have held an annual "Super Hetero-Disciplinary Exchange Meeting" where students and researchers participating in internship programs at RIVERNESS discuss their thoughts on their research and issues they wish to solve through their research. Since 2012, the conference has evolved into a "super interdisciplinary conference" with the participation of researchers from industry and academia, where discussions are held from a broader perspective.

Today, the meeting is held annually as a gathering of people from diverse fields and industries, ranging from junior high and high school students, researchers and engineers in academia (including engineers from local factories), people involved in venture companies, accelerators, and managers and business development personnel from large corporations.
