Lab Café Series - Science and Technology Innovation #16: "Where Are Scientists in Japan Going?"

2015-12-10 (Thu) 19:00 - 20:50

What are the conditions for science and technology to develop as something particularly beneficial for society? Science and Technology Innovation Seminars feature front runners from various fields to share their thought provoking insights on "innovation in society." In part 16 of this series, we've invited KOMAI Shoji, who is pushing forward with his research toward the establishment of cellular cognitive neuroscience as an Associate Professor at the Graduate School of Biological Sciences of Nara Institute of Science and Technology, while continuing to question the existence of the scientists themselves in the Science Council of Japan and other institutes. We'll hear from Associate Professor KOMAI about the future of scientists in Japan.

What is Lab Café?

A major program instituted at Art Area B1, "Lab Café" is designed and implemented by the Center for the Study of Communication-Design. Lab Café is an interactive program in which participants have wide-ranging discussions on a variety of topics. The program aims to make the station a communication space in the arts and academia by taking up various themes in philosophy, art, science and technology and providing the general public with chances to be exposed to expertise on those topics.

What is Art Area B1?

The concourse of the first basement of Naniwabashi Station was set up as Art Area B1 when the Keihan Electric Railway's Nakanoshima Line was opened on October 19, 2008. Since then, the project has aimed to make the station a center of artistic communication.
