1st Osaka University Toyonaka Regional Meeting

2016-12-20 (Tue) 10:00 - 18:30

Osaka University's Toyonaka Campus contains schools in the sciences, which value fundamental scientific research, as well as schools in humanities and social sciences. The quality of education and research activity that makes use of the special characteristics of the Toyonaka campus, such as interdisciplinary research, integrative research in arts and sciences, basic research, and industry-university collaboration, has been questioned in recent years.
The aim of this workshop is for researchers to learn about each others' research and deepen exchange. We would also like to hold discussions and deepen exchange with members of the industrial realm in order to develop new industry-university co-creation activity, so faculty, staff, students, and those individuals related to industry are welcome to attend.

Date and Time:

Tuesday, December 20, 2016 - 10:00 ~ 18:30 (Part 1: 10:00 ~ 13:00, Part 2: 13:00 ~ 18:30)


Osaka University Hall (1-13 Machikaneyama-cho, Toyonaka, Osaka)

Intended for:

Faculty, staff, students, members of the industry, and members of the general public

•Part 1: Poster Session
10:00 ~ 13:00 - Assembly Hall, 1F, Osaka University Hall
Introduction of research by researchers on Osaka University's Toyonaka Campus

•Part 2: Seminar for integration of arts and sciences “Discovery and history of nuclear radiation” (Talks are given in Japanese.)
13:00 ~ 18:30 - Lecture Hall, 2F, Osaka University Hall
Radiation may seem scary because of topics like nuclear accidents and military use, but radiation plays a big part in the latest scientific research and medicine. In this session, we'll share basic knowledge about radiation, and we'll decipher both sides of radiation, from the historical and political background behind development of its applications to the effects it has on the human body and society, as part of a discussion towards further development.
