L-INSIGHT is a hub at Kyoto University comprised of select researchers under the age of forty. It was established with a grant from the Japanese government. Through opportunities for collaboration with partners in industry and other countries, we are working to ensure that early career researchers will be able to freely and sustainably construct their own research communities in 2030.
The Joint Meeting Series is one of the joint program established last year that aims to promote seeds of future collaborative research initiatives led by young researchers themselves and to continue mutual progress through co-creation.
This year, we are very pleased to launch Front Runner Series as a forum to encourage the continuation and development of the research themes encountered in that joint meeting series. In the first session, Tomohiro Tanaka, a researcher in hydrology, will organize a discussion on the prospects of Water-Related Research .
Despite the continuing worldwide coronavirus pandemic, we would like to concretely discuss potential topics for research with people in other cultures and fields, taking the first step towards the creation of on-going relationships.
