The main purpose of the symposium is to intensify collaboration and to set a joint global research agenda to address and discuss the main challenges faced by our society in the realm of the new internet and communication technology era. The ultimate scope will be to highlight the ability of the scientific enterprise in creating economic growth, solving social problems, and satisfying the essential human drive to understand the world where we live. In addition to creating netwroking opportunities, the event is aimed at bringing separate branches of science and technology together, opening wider horizons for otherwise impossible collaborations.
The meeting is jointly organized by ETH Zurich and the Science & Technology Office of the Embassy of Switzerland in Tokyo.
This event is by invitation only.
