Osaka University Thank YOU Gathering held
On Tuesday, October 29, Osaka University held a Thank YOU Gathering for donors who had made major contributions to Osaka University Foundation for the Future. This gathering had previously been held every year at Osaka University’s Nakanoshima Center, but due to the increase in attendance in recent years, the gathering was held at Grand Front Osaka’s Knowledge Capital for the very first time.
Some 190 individuals were in attendance at the gathering's two sessions, a report session and a social hour, nearly double last year’s attendance numbers. In the report session, campus updates were given from President NISHIO Shojiro. He was followed by Executive Vice President KANEDA Yasufumi, who spoke about the activity of the Foundation for the Future. After students who received funding from Osaka University Future Funds for their independent research expressed their gratitude, Professor SAKATA Yasushi from the Graduate School of Medicine delivered a talk.
The social hour that followed the event further strengthened bonds between donors and Osaka University.
