panel discussion
Real tech is by design!

Within the 9th Annual Conference of the Association for Transdisciplinary Research, hosted by RIVANES (March 6-7, 2020 (Friday and Saturday)), a panel discussion, "Real Tech is by Design! will be held at the conference.

The 9th Main Conference of the Association of Hyperdifferent Fields WEB:https://hic.lne.st/conference/hic2020/

Real-tech ventures often view design as a superficial element, such as "appearance" or "shape," and as a result, there are many cases where the appeal of the product is not fully brought out. However, design originally refers to all planning activities that have an aesthetic root, and real-tech, whose goal is to solve problems, could be considered design itself. Therefore, Yukihiro Maru, CEO of the RIVANES Group, who is also a science art producer, moderated the session, together with two designers from universities and companies facing essential design, and Amada Holdings Corporation, a machine tool manufacturer that places design perspectives at the center of product development. Together with Mr. Kashimura, they will discuss the relationship between the essence of design and real tech.

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).
