RIKEN Center for Sustainable Resource Science (CSRS) will host an international symposium themed “Hope for the Future - RIKEN Symposium on Sustainable Resource Science -”.

Since its establishment in 2013, CSRS has been promoting “problem-solving” research based on the principle of “manufacturing” with a low environmental impact, with the aim of realizing a sustainable society through the integration of different fields of plant science, chemical biology, and catalytic chemistry. The purpose of this symposium is to establish a new field of “sustainable resource science” for the realization of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and to widely disseminate this field to society, and to allow us to discuss society’s expectation of this new field and what our centers and researchers can and should do to make this all possible. Dr. Akira Yoshino (recipient of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2019) and Professor Johan Rockström (Director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research) will give talks as keynote speakers.

Summer Program 2021 Overview
The RIKEN Center for Brain Science (RIKEN CBS), located just outside Tokyo, Japan, offers a summer program to train advanced students interested in brain function. The course consists of an intensive 5-day lecture series featuring distinguished international faculty and a poster session to be put on by the program participants. These two components are equally important for the students to deepen their insight and enhance their expertise in neuroscience. While the lectures serve to introduce them to cutting-edge research being carried out throughout the world, the student poster session allows them to experience the work of their colleagues and share their own research. We encourage the students to take full advantage of the wonderful opportunities offered by this program to broaden the horizons of their research.

Attendees come from wide-ranging academic backgrounds and are usually enrolled in graduate courses, or have recently embarked on postdoctoral research. However, candidates holding other positions are encouraged to apply.

Because of the uncertainty related to travel due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the program will be offered in a hybrid format in which students and lecturers can attend virtually or in-person. However, there is a possibility that the meeting will be entirely virtual if travel remains difficult. We will assess the situation in March and make a final decision about whether some participants can attend in person (hybrid) or whether the meeting will be completely virtual. Regardless, we will use every tool at our disposal to make this an interactive, engaging and rewarding experience for all participants.

For students who are able to enter the country for on-site participation, RIKEN CBS will provide funding for travel and accommodation if they do not have existing financial support.

Research seminars are an important vehicle through which researchers can stay abreast of most cutting-edge developments in various fields of brain research.
The OnlineBSS is the flagship seminar series at CBS and is held approximately once a month, inviting prominent researchers mostly from abroad to share their expertise.

The Online BSS is open to the scientific community in Japan.
