“The 3rd Hiroshima University Symposium on SDGs: Innovation, Collaboration, and Transformation from Hiroshima”

The Symposium will focus on transformative collaboration between universities and corporations for SDGs. It will consist of three parts: In the part one, world-top researchers will review such collaborations in the global arena and discuss how to build and manage transformative cooperation, referring to innovative actions and researches ever taken by Future Earth. The part two will have two interesting cases introduced as advanced examples from Japan’s corporates, and the part three will have four presentations from Hiroshima University’s research groups enjoying active collaborations with corporates. Many corporations including ones belonging to Hiroshima University Phoenix Cooperative Consortium could attend the event.
