Greater UTokyo Seminar

Greater UTokyo Seminars are theme-specific learning programs which were started in Fall 2010 with the aim of contributing to social development as well as scientific and cultural creation from a global perspective.

The Seminars are open to all people, including UTokyo alumni. Each Greater UTokyo Seminar consists of a series of 10 lectures focused on cutting-edge themes of contemporary society, and issues are pursued to the core by professionals including key lecturers. Approximately 300 people have already attended the seminars in total.

Recruitment for the 13th Greater UTokyo Seminar, which will focus on AI, will start in late January 2017.
