Okinawa Field Program: Kyoto University and OIST Joint Meeting Series “Challenge for serendipity”

Kyoto University / Okinawa Institute of Science And Technology Graduate University(OIST) Joint Program Ⅰ(FY2020)

L-INSIGHT is a hub at Kyoto University comprised of select researchers under the age of forty. It was established with a grant from the Japanese government. Through opportunities for collaboration with partners in industry and other countries, we are working to ensure that early career researchers will be able to freely and sustainably construct their own research communities in the decades to come.
This academic year was the first in which L-INSIGHT was fully up and running. We decided to launch, along with our friends at OIST, a series of events that would cultivate grassroots connections between individual researchers.
Despite the continuing worldwide coronavirus pandemic, we would like to concretely discuss potential topics for research with people in other cultures and fields, taking the first step towards the creation of on-going relationships. Furthermore, while actual travel remains difficult, we hope that this event’s conversations, potential joint projects, and unexpected encounters will serve as a springboard from which to incorporate new ways of handling unpredictability into future research activities.
