Special Lecture open to all OIST community on Tuesday July 23 11:00-12:00 at the Sydney Brenner Lecture Theater (B250 Center Building, OIST campus).

Speaker: Vincent Rivasseau (Professor, University Paris-Sud, Orsay, France)

Title: Science without borders, a key to mankind survival?


Abstract: Modern science is an international enterprise critical for mankind to survive and thrive at the 10 billion+ level on our small planet. However it is under heavy threat from religious integrism and resurgent populist nationalism. I'll argue, taking as primary example the case of Africa, that we urgently need to better share science and modern technology with developing countries, not just for humanitarian reasons, but in a win-win perspective. In my own experience, even our most abstract and advanced scientific research, such as understanding the deep nature of space, time and quantum gravity, can greatly benefit from the fresh and open-minded contribution of scientists coming from all corners of the world.

大学や研究機関において生み出される最新の先端科学技術に基づく技術革新は近年、創薬やバイオテクノロジー、新素材・新エネルギー、ロボット、IoTなどの分野において世界的に急速に注目が高まりつつある。こうした分野は応用にあたって多額の資金や長期にわたる開発期間を要することから収益化が困難とされ、「Deep Tech」と呼ばれている。ボストンやロンドンのような学術機関の集積地においてはベンチャーキャピタルを中心とした独自のDeep Tech起業支援体制を確立させる試みが進展しつつある。

Disruptive innovations based on cutting-edge research results produced at universities and research institutes are gathering worldwide attention by those who are involved in the areas such as drug discovery, biotech, new materials, renewable energy, robotics and IoT.  These innovations are referred to as “Deep Tech” as they often struggle to find initial funding because of their complex nature and the longer time scale necessary to produce results compared to the other types of startups.  Academic cities such as the areas around Boston and London area are rapidly gathering momentum and interests by venture capitals and startups to establish an innovation ecosystem based on “Deep Tech”.

In this forum the keynote speakers and panelists will discuss the visions, missions and roles of universities, and how hi-tech and cutting-edge scientific research can contribute to the establishment of a Deep Tech innovation ecosystem.
