I²CNER Tokyo Symposium
-Japan-U.S. collaboration on Energy-














Topic

How I2CNER can bring the Japan and U.S. together regarding Carbon-Neutral Energy in research and education.

Objective

i) Demonstrate how collaboration between Japanese and US academic and research institutions is providing carbon-neutral energy solutions that will impact our respective countries and more broadly the world.

ii) Show how merging Japan and the US academic and research cultures is impacting and transforming multi-disciplinary international research and academic infrastructures.

iii) Explore how what can be done to improve, enhance and accelerate the translation of our research to influence energy policy and directions.
