Welcome to the Fall 2015 Keio Global e-newsletter!
This edition features: International Conference on Cognitive Decline and its Economic Consequences, The Second Japan-UK Universities Conference for Collaboration in Research and Education, and Tsuruoka Town Campus of Keio: Driving Original and Innovative Research Toward a Brighter Future.
Keio University is continuing to take a leading role in addressing global issues surrounding an ageing population, this time by focusing on cognitive decline in a conference cohosted with the World Economic Forum. This was the main event for KEIO AGEING WEEK–a series of events focused on healthy ageing, or more specifically, exploring solutions to challenges related to an ageing society.
Heads and senior leaders of research-oriented universities from Japan and the UK convened at Keio to discuss issues surrounding research and education with the aim of increasing cooperation and collaboration between the two countries.
The Tsuruoka Town Campus of Keio, now in its 15th year, is a resounding success story, both in terms of its ground-breaking research and in revitalizing the rural city of Tsuruoka. Professor Masaru Tomita talks about some of the achievements of the Keio University Institute for Advanced Biosciences, and we introduce a research article he collaborated on that was published in Nature Scientific Reports in May of this year.
The International Center Global Lounge opened in October 2015 on Level 1 of the South School Building on Mita Campus. The newly renovated lounge is intended to encourage Keio students to study abroad and to promote interaction between Keio and international students on campus.
This symposium, held at Keio’s Mita Campus, was an opportunity to discuss novel strategies for international collaboration in higher education on a global level, as well as a networking opportunity with participants from Japanese, European, and other Asian universities and institutions.
Cohosted by Keio and the British Council and now in its 5th year, the Experience Japan exhibition has become a popular annual event that allows visitors to meet representatives of Japanese universities and other organizations and to hear from people with experience of study and work in Japan in a number of seminars held throughout the afternoon.
This annual event, organized by the Keio Leading-edge Laboratory of Science and Technology, showcases the research results of Keio University’s Faculty and Graduate School of Science and Technology, and is a place for future collaboration between government, industry, and academia for joint research, technology transfer, and more. KEIO TECHNO-MALL 2014 attracted more than 1,700 visitors from industry, government, and other universities, and this year promises to be another excellent opportunity to get up close with cutting-edge technology and creative ideas.
