Purpose

At the Frontier Research Institute for Interdisciplinary Sciences (FRIS) at Tohoku University, nearly all academic fields are divided into six research areas (Materials & Energy, Life & Environment, Information & Systems, Device & Technology, Humans & Society, and Advanced Basic Sciences). However, FRIS researchers do not confine themselves to their respective areas, but actively engage and collaborate with researchers from other fields, aiming to foster cross-disciplinary integration and the emergence of nascent research.

The FRIS Hub Meeting is a research presentation seminar in which all FRIS researchers participate, held monthly on the fourth Thursday of every month except August since January 2019. The purpose of these meetings is for presenters to introduce their research and provide accessible, specialized content to researchers from all areas, fostering the creation of new research themes. Since January 2021, these meetings have been held jointly with the Tohoku Initiative for Fostering Global Researchers for Interdisciplinary Sciences (TI-FRIS) Hub Meeting.

Presentations not only introduce easily understandable research findings to researchers from different fields, but also emphasize aspects such as "what makes your field interesting," "the research methods in your field," and "introducing problems that seem unsolvable within your field alone." As common understanding and thought processes cannot be expected among researchers from different fields, participants are encouraged to actively ask questions, engage in discussions, and deepen their understanding during the presentations.

At the Hub Meeting, we strongly encourage presentations in English. Those who are eligible to participate in the Hub Meeting (see below) are encouraged to attend.

  • Date and Time: The 4th Thursday of every month (11:00-12:00) except August
