Global Symposium on Scientific Breakthroughs
JSPS will be hosting a “Global Symposium on Scientific Breakthroughs,” to be held as a side event of the 4th Annual Meeting of the Global Research Council (GRC) in Tokyo this May. The GRC is a high-level forum that assembles the heads of leading research-promotion agencies from around the world to discuss issues and initiatives related to commonly encountered issues. Open to the public, the tandem symposium will address one of the GRC meeting’s themes: Research Funding for Scientific Breakthrough.
This symposium will address policy issues such as approaches to supporting the kind of basic research that leads to scientific breakthroughs and measures to advance global research networking through presentations and panel discussions by representatives of world-leading research funding agencies, Nobel laureates and policymakers in Science and Technology.
