LIMMS/CIBiS/CIRMM workshop “Workshop on international research leading to Innovation and new technology bridging academics and societal demands”

LIMMS/CIBIS/CIRMM workshop "Workshop on International research leading to Innovation and new Technology bridging academics and societal demands"

12, Dec. 2016

We aim at presenting University of Tokyo academic’s advanced research programs and our recent innovations to the local eco system of industries. The purpose will be to develop collaborative research programs with high potential impact on innovation and to build new consortium between French-Japanese players.

In parallel we would like to show examples of existing collaborations between French and Japanese structures both at the academic level and the industrial level.
