OIST x iTHEMS workshop series - Will We Find Answers? Exploring the Mysteries of the Universe and Life - Series 1 | Cosmic ray and Life project |

Monday, March 4, 2024 (All day) to Wednesday, March 6, 2024 (All day)
L5D23

This Workshop Series, co-hosted by OIST and RIKEN iTHEMS, invites you to embark on a journey to challenge the enigmas of the universe and life. We go beyond traditional Astrobiology, welcoming researchers, and students from diverse backgrounds to explore the intertwined mysteries of space and life through an interdisciplinary approach. This program offers an opportunity for individuals with backgrounds in life sciences, medicine, astronomy, astrophysics, philosophy, engineering, marine sciences, chemistry, etc., to participate in the quest for understanding the cosmic and biological enigmas. Join us in seeking unknown answers and embracing this captivating journey.

While we may not be able to complete this journey, let's pave the way for the next generation!
