Starting something new requires new knowledge. The Super Interdisciplinary Society is a place where participants from different fields and industries bring their own knowledge and collaborate to create new knowledge that transcends barriers. The knowledge generated here will eventually solve global problems and create local industries. We will continue to build a bridge of knowledge exchange like the Seto-ohashi Bridge from Kagawa to the world and create a knowledge manufacturing ecosystem. The next Kagawa Forum will be held on Saturday, December 3, 2022. If you are interested in participating as a poster, booth, or partner company, please contact us.
