OIST Forum 2019 "DEEP TECH Evolves the World"

Kandamyojin Hall, Tokyo

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.
