Project description

The Australian National University and the University of Tokyo will collaborate to lead and deliver two forums in Japan (Tokyo and Osaka) in 2018, focused on science diplomacy and public policy.

The forums will bring together researchers, the public sector and business community to provide updates on a range of global issues that require public policy responses and where scientific collaboration would provide better informed policy and innovative solutions. Those areas include, among other topics, energy policy, climate change and the environment, ageing and public health.

The forums will be platforms for facilitating links between scientific research, business-university relationships and the development of strong evidence-based public policy.
