Joint Program I (FY2020)
Joint Meeting Series “Challenge for Serendipity”
L-INSIGHT is a hub at Kyoto University comprised of select rese archers 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 const ruct their own research communities in 2030.
This academic year was the first in which L-INSIGHT was fully up and running. We decided to launch, along with our friends at OIST, a series of events that would cultivate grassroots connections between individual researchers.
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 crea tion of on-going relationships. Furthermo re, while ac tual travel r emains difficult, we hope that this event’ s conversations, potential joint projects, and unexpected encounters will serve as a springboard from which to incorporat e new ways of handling unpredictability into future research activities.
