7. Future Planning/Outreach/Industry-Academia Partnership Committees Collaborative Event

Panel Discussion, “Brain Science and Society in 2050” * in Japanese
Neuroscience has been progressing at a remarkable pace in the last 20 years, and has contributed massively to the development of technologies, such as AI and brain machine interface, and to scientific understanding of our brain, mind and their health. Then, what will have been achieved by 2050? And how will society utilize neuroscientific discoveries?
We invite panelists who are at the forefront of Industry-Academia-Government to share their perspectives. This is a great opportunity for us to think about where we should head to in the next few decades. This event will be held as a real-time streaming project, and anybody interested is welcome to attend.
Date and time: Sunday, August 2, 13:30 - 17:30
Venue: To be streamed via Zoom webinar (details to be announced on the conference website)
Organized by Kenji Matsumoto, Tsuyoshi Miyakawa, Hisatsugu Kosimizu (Future Planning Committee, Outreach Committee, and Industry-Academia Collaboration Promotion Committee of the Japanese Neuroscience Society)
