The 5th Japan-US Science Forum in Boston (2020) -Special Program-

-DATE-    Saturday, November 14, 2020, 5:00pm – 9:00pm (EST) / Sunday, November 15, 2020, 7:00am – 11:00am (JST)

After the unprecedented high economic growth in the post-war period and the “bubble economy” in the late 1980s, Japan now faces difficult challenges, such as an ageing and declining population and an energy crisis, that other countries have never experienced. Japan is well positioned to offer the world innovative solutions to address those challenges.

“The Japan-US Science Forum in Boston” was inaugurated in 2016, aiming to create an interdisciplinary meeting opportunity that stimulates collaborations between researchers to solve world-wide problems.  Previous forums were held to discuss how science could help an ageing society (2016), a safe food supply (2017), science of sleep (2018) and nanoscience (2019). Due to COVID-19, this year’s forum will be held virtually as a special program.
