【29th of August】Kick-off Symposium of the Kyushu University Stockholm Liaison Office (Due date: 14th of Aug)

Updated on 23rd of August: Zoom invitation added

In April 2020, Kyushu University inaugurated a new overseas office in Sweden to promote collaborations in Europe. Due to the pandemic, the university has not yet been able to celebrate the opening on site.
On the occasion of the visit of a delegation led by President Tatsuro Ishibashi to Sweden, we will hold an in-person kick-off symposium open to the public.

It would be greatly appreciated if you could forward this event to interested colleagues, students and researchers.
We are thrilled to welcome as many participants as possible.

*Please note that we are considering the possibility of hybrid symposium at the moment. If available, we will update at this webpage.
