FRIS Hub Meeting
FRIS categorizes almost all academic fields into six research fields (Materials and Energy, Life and Environments, Information and Systems, Device and Technology, Human and Society, and Advanced Basic Science). However, FRIS researchers are not confined to their respective research fields and are actively engaged in exchanges and collaborations with researchers in other research fields, which will allow for the interdisciplinary fusion of a wide range of academic fields and the creation of embryonic research.
The FRIS Hub Meeting is a research presentation seminar for all FRIS researchers, held once a month on the 4th Thursday of each month except August. In the past, participants had been researchers within FRIS, but from December 2019, the target audience has been expanded to include researchers and students at Tohoku University. In addition, from January 2021, the meeting has been held jointly with the TI-FRIS Hub Meeting.
The presentations will focus on "what is interesting about my field," "what is the research method in my field," and "introduction of problems that are not likely to be solved only within my field," in addition to the introduction of easy-to-understand research results for researchers in different fields.
The language used is a mixture of Japanese and English. Common sense and way of thinking cannot be expected among researchers in different fields. The audience is encouraged to ask questions during the presentation to discuss and deepen their understandings. Please participate actively.
- Date & Time: Every 4th Thursday of the month except August (11:00-12:00)
- Target Audience: Researchers and students of Tohoku University, and TI-FRIS Fellows
