The SFC Open Research Forum (ORF) was held over the two days of Sunday, November 20 and Monday, November 21, 2022 at Shonan Fujisawa Campus.
The purpose of this event is to give back to the community through the sharing of the achievements of the advanced research activities conducted at Shonan Fujisawa Campus (SFC) and to further develop industry-government-academia collaboration.
This year, the 27th ORF was held back on campus for the first time in 20 years with events such as exhibitions and panels under the theme of "THE NATURE OF SFC—Back To The Forest—."
The event was a success, with approximately 1,900 guests attending the event, undeterred by the rainfall.
The ORF boasted a wide range of projects, including more than 40 exhibits in the exhibition booth area and 20 panel talks, which fascinated attendees. In addition, special events such as the booth for admissions consultations were well received. The event proved to be a valuable opportunity to showcase a wide variety of research in a way that is true to SFC and its sprawling campus—all under the backdrop of the beautiful autumnal scenery.
