Early career scientists from the world gather in Tsukuba, Japan
The Tsukuba Conference is an international conference where talented young people from industry, government and academia from around the world gather in Tsukuba Science City* to discuss on various issues in ‘science and technology in society’ to form networks among them. It aims to be the young people’s version of the Davos.
The conference is mainly for young future shapers (in principle up to ages under 50) in various fields such as researchers (including students), engineers, entrepreneurs, investors, social entrepreneurs, journalists, officials of public offices and international organizations, and others.
Its third edition will be held from 26th to 28th September 2023.
