GovTech (Government x Technology), which uses new technology to solve long-standing problems faced by governments and municipalities, has begun to attract attention in recent years.
Disaster preparedness is an area where GovTech is needed, as exemplified by the recent natural disasters in Japan, such as typhoons that caused extensive damage in the Kansai region in 2018 and in the Kanto region in 2019. In addition, there are many issues that need to be solved by the entire country, such as education, food/agriculture, and health/healthcare.
In this session, we will discuss the forefront of GovTech, how governments and private companies should promote GovTech by utilizing "DeepTech" technology to solve the deep global issues that humanity is facing, facilitated by Yukihiro Maru, CEO of Liverness Group. Under the facilitation of CEO Yukihiro Maru, key persons from METI and Cabinet Office, and Drone Fund, a VC specializing in drone and air mobility, will discuss the forefront of GovTech.


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).
