What are "Osaka University Future Talks?"

At Osaka University, through the initiative of President HIRANO Toshio and with the aim of creating a new university structure, the Institute for Academic Initiatives was launched. There, students from five Programs for Leading Graduate Schools are busily studying to make their dreams a reality. We started the "Osaka University Future Talks" series in the hopes that these students will become the world leaders of the future.
"Osaka University Future Talks" are special lectures in which individuals active in a variety of fields speak about the latest findings in their areas of specialization. These lectures will give us a hint as to what the 22nd century will inherit, and what it will continue to develop as well.
