“How could universities foster innovation and entrepreneurship?”
3 groups from LKYSPP and 2 groups from GraSPP will give presentations on their thoughts and learnings from the one week study trip, focusing on Japan’s current situation on innovation.
The panel discussion will focus on how university resources such as biotech and health care technologies can be expanded to business opportunities. Case studies of Japan’s past innovations and current issues, as well as cases in Singapore will be brought up for the audience to understand in great depth about the theme. We hope to have an interactive session so please bring in your questions and ideas to the event and share them with us!
We will have a short but solid interaction session (light meals provided) with panelists and other participants! It’s completely free of charge so feel free to stay until our last session.
This event is freely open to all students both in and outside of the University of Tokyo including undergraduate students.
