panel discussion
Envisioning the world's hottest research institute
~The Next Generation and a Place to Accelerate the Growth of Researchers

Riverness will sponsor the event.The 8th Main Meeting of the Association of Hyperdifferent Fields(March 8-9, 2019 (Friday and Saturday)), we will discuss the future of research institutes with the next generation of researchers in the "Envisioning the Hottest Research Institute in the World - Thinking with the Next Generation, What is the Place to Accelerate Researchers' Growth?(Session Partner: JTEKT Corporation)The event will be held at the following location.

The 8th Main Conference of the Association of Hyperdifferent Fields WEB:https://hic.lne.st/2019

Combined with the revision of the curriculum guidelines for junior high and high schools and the promotion of high school-university collaboration, an increasing number of junior high and high school students are starting full-scale research while still in high school. Many of them have turned their homes and schools into "laboratories," using the Internet to engage in discussions with a diverse range of people while pursuing their research in a free-spirited manner. Now that "research careers" no longer begin at universities, what kind of environment and network are necessary to foster researchers who pursue diverse research careers? In this session, we will envision the "hottest research institute in the world" where researchers can freely conduct research based on their own ideas, together with "super young researchers" who started their research careers in junior high and high school. In an environment not bound by conventional frameworks, let's fantasize and envision "what kind of research institute would be great" and create a step toward its realization.

We will have a program of discussions among researchers, venture companies, and large corporations from various perspectives, not limited to the themes of this session.
Audience members are invited to attend the conference. Please visit the conference website (see below).
