Promotion of Academic Research, Science and Technology
This program offers seminars for the general public to experience the latest topics in science and technology. Starting in 1994, these seminars have been held 18 times thus far, inviting Nobel prize recipients, researchers involved in cutting edge research, and recipients of Kurata Grants, our research grant project, as lecturers.
The seminars, popular themes from a diverse range of fields, including medicine, engineering, life sciences, earth and space sciences, and computer science, are taken up and explained in simple terms with the goal of having people from many generations experience how interesting science is and the value of seeing things through the lens of science.
In our seminars, we always take up hot topics from diverse fields such as medicine, engineering, life sciences, earth and space sciences, and information technology, and explain them in an easy-to-understand manner, with the aim of making people of all ages feel the fun of science and the importance of seeing things through the eyes of science.
