About this event

This event aims to promote joint research with banners of research overviews by solving issues through interactions among researchers in various fields, who want to import techniques/methods from different fields, try something new, or simply interact with researchers in other fields.
This will be an opportunity to connect such desires and possible research. 

There are consultation booths on the “research grant for development of female research leaders” and the “research grant by NOASTEC Foundation” in FY2020.
Those grants are for the next fiscal year application by the participants.
