Thinking about the future of activities to expand the base of research


A panel discussion, "Thinking about the future of activities to expand the base of research" (session partner: Bio Impact Co., Ltd.) will be held within the Osaka Conference 2022 (Saturday, August 27, 2022) of the Association for Hyperdifferent Fields.


Hyper Interdisciplinary Conference in Osaka 2022

The development of science and technology has fueled the technological and cultural progress of humankind, much of which originated from personal intellectual curiosity. The knowledge generated through personal activities has been enriched by being shared through conversations, manuscripts, and academic conferences, and has become the foundation of today's civilization by being recognized as an achievement that could change the world. Since the advent of the Internet, the amount of such academic information distributed has increased dramatically. In recent years, in particular, there has been a growing movement to promote open science, in which research data, related materials, and papers of results are immediately shared around the world to promote the composition of the next phase of research. With such an environment in place that facilitates access to research-related information, how is the scope of this environment expanding and what possibilities are emerging? We welcome as speakers those who are exploring the possibilities of activities in relation to citizens and the next generation, and together with the audience, we will think about the future of this field.

We will have a program of discussions among researchers, startups, and large companies from a variety of perspectives, not limited to the themes of this session. For more information,Conference Websitefor more information.
