“Registration Closed” The 88th Public Policy Seminar “Disrupting Development through Science, Technology and Innovation” December 14, 2017

Public Policy Seminar

Registration is closed as we have reached our full capacity for the seminar.

The appropriate use of STI (Science, Technology and Innovation) has potential to dramatically accelerate progress towards the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). How is STI creating new growth pathways? Do developing countries follow growth trajectories of the advanced economies? What are the roles of governments, private sector and academia? Taking advantage of World Bank President Jim Yong Kim’s visit to Tokyo, we will discuss these issues.

Date: Thursday, December 14

Venue: Fukutake Learning Theater, Fukutake Hall B2, The University of Tokyo Hongo Campus

Language: English and Japanese (with simultaneous interpretation)
