July 23, 2017 to July 24, 2016
Global training center “Hazu academy”, Toyota Industries Corp. Co., Ltd.
・Short presentation and Poster session by Toyota Riken Scholars and Specially Promoted Project Leaders
・Special lecture by Toyota Riken Fellow
・Discussion and Round meeting etc.
Previously Toyota Riken only contacted Toyota Riken Scholars and Specially Promoted Project Members in the beginning of the grand and the end of the fiscal year to receive the research results. Since those excellent young researchers and expert Toyota Riken Fellows did not have an opportunity to communicate each other, there was an opinion “Mottainai” – it is such a waste of opportunities. To overcome the situation, we held the first Interdisciplinary Exchange Camp.
After the camp, we received following comments. We believe the camp succeeded more than we had expected. It was also great opportunity for us to hear opinions from researchers about Toyota Riken Grand Programs directly. We would like to review the comments and reflect to our programs for the future.
・It was very useful to discuss over night with various researchers who I usually do not have communication with.
・It was great opportunity to explain my research to other researchers in different fields.
・We had lively QA session at the poster session.
・I found possibility to develop a new collaborative research.
・I was impressed with the advice of the Toyota Riken Fellows.
・It was easy to start conversation with the first met people over various local Sake.
・I hope you to continue such an exchange meeting.
・It will be appreciated if there is a new grand program for a joint research that came out of this camp.
